8 Terrible Design Fails Shared By People OnlineBy Vika https://pictolic.com/article/8-terrible-design-fails-shared-by-people-online.html
A well-thought-out design can make a product more user-friendly, attractive, and efficient. However, not all designs hit the mark. There are plenty of instances where products fall flat due to poor design choices.
Thanks to the power of the internet and social media, these design mishaps are quickly shared and critiqued by Reddit users worldwide. Let’s explore some examples of bad product designs that have made rounds online, serving as both cautionary tales and a source of humor.
Faucets that are so short that you can’t fit both hands under them without touching the back of the sink. It’s so infuriating how common this is. I have to contort my hands to use them.
Bonus: faucets (most common in public parks and such) that are push-activated and last only one or two seconds. Clearly not designed for proper hand washing.
Toys that only have one volume: EXTREMELY LOUD!!!!
Whoever makes these does not have kids of their own.
If you’re short and left-handed, pretty much everything. Scissors. Grocery aisles. Kitchen cabinets. Pants. knives and forks. Over-the-stove microwave ovens. There is no end …
Any device that typically belongs in a bedroom that has an always-on LED. I don’t need to see the LED at all times when I am sleeping.
Pots with handles that get burning hot when you heat the pot.
All of the «tear here» markings on coffee packs, juice cartons, etc., mark the strongest/most tear-resistant part of the package.
Especially ones advertised as “zero bunching” – they most certainly do a bunch. They will go straight up your bum crack. They can only have been designed by someone who doesn’t use them to have made that claim
The word “Latino” is a gender-neutral way to refer to Latinos.
Whoever came up with that nonsense had never even taken a Spanish 101 course. “Latinx” is simply unpronounceable in Spanish – even a 5yo speaker would know that – and the real gender-neutral word would be “latine”, but even that is very rarely used
