Designs at their best can make your brand memorable through catchy slogans and imagery. At their worst, however, they can make people remember your company for all the wrong reasons. The subreddit “Crappy Design” is a great example of how designs can go so very wrong, and leave a bad mark on your name.

Bored Panda has curated a new list of our favorite design fails from “Crappy Designs.” Sure these designers might have had good intentions, but where were their editors? Everything from animal sex on kids pajamas to subtle double entendres that an editor clearly missed, several people were clearly spaced out on the job. Scroll down below to see the complete list and don’t forget to upvote your favorites!

Not a design fail. They say it like that on purpose. People have been laughing at those signs for decades.

It makes you wonder if the artist did this on purpose. "It will take them centuries to notice!"
