These Crappy Designs Will Make You Feel Good About Your Visuals (Part 2)

by . October 13th, 2016

Crappy design is eternal.

Last year, we’ve featured several of the crappiest designs around the web. From poster layouts, font choices, and web designs, a lot of these are just a pain to scroll through. A lot of these people, who may or may not be professional designers, seemed to have forgotten the purpose of design.

Incorporating form and function into a single concept is the hallmark of a good design. You use design to communicate an idea effectively. These designs terribly missed that point.

But honestly, it feels so good to check some of these designs. Call it schadenfreude or what. Browsing the subreddit /r/CrappyDesign is one of my favorite past times and stress relievers. Even the subreddit design gives an homage to the crappy design of the past, with clip art and Papyrus and text marquees.

Here is part 2 of the set of crappy designs all around the web. Click the photo to check the source.
