20 of: crappy designs

_____________________________

There is a website called Crappy design that is dedicated to showing design failures, whether that be because of poor placement of multiple images, the inappropriate positioning and spacing of letters (known as kerning) or simply because of stupidity. As Einstein is reputed to have said, “There are two things which are infinite: the universe and stupidity, but I’m not sure about the former.” Crappy Design can be accessed by clicking on the following link: 

Below are some images from that site.

The ad designer mist have tried to an online translation service. The fault lies, not in not knowing English (I might make the same mistake, for instance, translating a phrase into Thai), but in not checking.
