Before deciding on how your shop sign, book cover or even a newspaper is going to look, you should definitely reexamine the final draft. From these bad design examples, though, you can see, that they were not revised. Or were left as they are as some evil joke to the customer. If you do not desire to be left with doors that only open for a Jedi, a Minion shampoo bottle crying bloody tears, or a street sign that's utterly indecipherable - better not mess with the designer.

These funny design fails are here to show you, that good designers usually deserve more credit than they get. They put up with a lot more nonsense from clients than we think, and they can prevent you from making unfortunate design choices like the ones on this list. If you don't want to end up looking foolish, a good designer is worth the money!

So scroll through our list of design fails, and remember - what you pay for is what you get!

Seen these at the airport. Likely a sign beside it explaining it is for unopened liquids that are too big to get through security. Actually a neat idea.

Lol no, 普洱茶 which you pronounce it as 'Pu-er' in Chinese is a very healthy tea that dose indeed help with digestion (+ other health benefits). Reason why it is called 'Pu'er' is because the tea originated from Pu'er city located in Yunnan Province in China, hence Pu'er tea. Its other name is 滇青茶 which means 'Yunnan green tea'.

This is exactly what my bathroom was like when I moved in. Two months into my lease, they had to replace the toilet! Needless to say, I now have a little less counter space.

It looks like a cramped area. Maybe it was designed so that people don't leave their drinks on the edge of the table where it might be knocked off? Potentially a rather clever design.
