Who says what is a good design or a bad design?
Well… Usually, people with common sense would say that good design is visually appealing, easy to use, and effectively communicates the intended message or function. It takes into consideration the user’s needs and preferences and strives to create a positive user experience. Good design is also functional, efficient, and intuitive, allowing users to accomplish their goals easily and efficiently.
So what about bad design? On the other hand, bad design is visually unappealing, confusing, and difficult to use. It may have poor usability, unclear messaging, and a lack of consideration for the user’s needs. Bad design can frustrate users and create a negative user experience, potentially leading to a loss of customers or users.
Overall, good design is an essential component of any successful product or service, as it can help to enhance the user experience and increase user satisfaction. Conversely, bad design can detract from the user experience, hinder usability, and ultimately harm the success of the product or service.
But what if the designer had a good idea but executed in such a way making that made it awful? This collection of designs featured here today is just that…
