By now, it looks like crappy design is something inherently human. There's such an abundance of it, we'll probably never run out of it. And that's not necessarily a bad thing. I mean, is there a better way of getting your daily dose of whahahahahahaha if not judging others for their mistakes? Bored Panda has prepared another crappy design list for you, poking fun at some of the most ridiculous projects that saw the light of day. From coffee mugs that were created to poke your eyes out to photography services producing outdated leaflets and beyond, scroll down to enjoy the crappy crappiness and upvote your faves.

So we've seen the consequences of bad design, so what makes for good design? There are a few basic principles to stick to if you want to make sure your design is practical, relevant and makes sense!

According to Dieter Rams, a German industrial designer who was responsible for the design of Braun’s consumer products for many years, there are 10 principles of good design, also known as the '10 commandments.' Even though they were written long ago and technology has advanced beyond his wildest dreams, Dieter's principles still apply today!

It is highly illegal to take pictures on the railroad tracks... would you take pictures at a military base? Or an airport tarmac? No railroad tracks are public property and if you are caught on them you are treated as if you were where as those other two were. In United States you can be also have the patriot act thrown at you, treated like a terrorist, beside class 1 trespassing. Besides all that, it is very dangerous, just asked the movie crew that couldn't railroad permissions. They decided to do it anyways and 1 of the actors and crew died. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midnight_Rider_(film)#Train_collision_at_the_Doctortown_railroad_trestle

Furniture designers Vitsoe have worked closely with Dieter Rams for decades, and helpfully summarize his founding principles of good design with the following explanations:

Good design is innovative The possibilities for innovation are not, by any means, exhausted. Technological development is always offering new opportunities for innovative design. But innovative design always develops in tandem with innovative technology, and can never be an end in itself.

Good design makes a product useful: A product is bought to be used. It has to satisfy certain criteria, not only functional, but also psychological and aesthetic. Good design emphasizes the usefulness of a product whilst disregarding anything that could possibly detract from it.

Good design is aesthetic: The aesthetic quality of a product is integral to its usefulness because products we use every day affect our person and our well-being. But only well-executed objects can be beautiful.

Good design makes a product understandable: It clarifies the product’s structure. Better still, it can make the product talk. At best, it is self-explanatory.

Good design is unobtrusive: Products fulfilling a purpose are like tools. They are neither decorative objects nor works of art. Their design should therefore be both neutral and restrained, to leave room for the user’s self-expression.

Good design is honest: It does not make a product more innovative, powerful or valuable than it really is. It does not attempt to manipulate the consumer with promises that cannot be kept.

Good design is thorough down to the last detail: Nothing must be arbitrary or left to chance. Care and accuracy in the design process show respect towards the user.

Good design is environmentally-friendly: Design makes an important contribution to the preservation of the environment. It conserves resources and minimizes physical and visual pollution throughout the lifecycle of the product.

Good design is as little design as possible: Less, but better – because it concentrates on the essential aspects, and the products are not burdened with non-essentials. Back to purity, back to simplicity.

So three you have it, pretty simple right? If you are tasked with designing something and want to avoid the hilarious mistakes found in this list, check these principles off first and you should succeed!
