We hope you’ve had a good laugh at this list. : )

And while these gone wrong designs are hilarious to look at, bad designs, in general, have a negative effect towards any business or individual.

It’s then important to:

  • Seek alternative viewpoints before you release your “masterpiece”.
  • Stick to the basic graphic design rules, because you might be misusing your creativity.
  • If you’re working for a client, make sure you adhere to their principles.

And lastly, if you aren’t satisfied with your own designs, it’s always worth to seek help with a professional that will make sure your designs will reflect the message you want to convey. After all, a bad design could even cost you more than just plain hiring a someone to do the job.

At Youzign, we have a service called Kickstart which lets you hire our entire band of designers to create whatever you want, on demand designs, right inside your Youzign account. We can even create designs that you then sell to a client!
