People Couldn’t Ignore These 50 Good Ideas Executed Horrendously, So They Shared Them In This Group

Generally, what separates a good design from a bad one is that a good design focuses on making a product useful and doesn’t include anything that takes away from it, while a bad design is confusing, distracting, difficult to use, and has a short lifespan.

However, what if the design that has potential was executed in such a way that the finished result has an inferior outcome? Well, it turns out that we get these half-good, half-bad sorts of ideas that, if done better, could be golden. So this leads us to a subreddit called Good Taste But Awful Execution (aka GTBAE), where people share their findings of these bad executions in the wild.

While exploring these hilarious design fails, let us know in the comments below which seems like the worst one yet. And if you are interested, check out a reversed alternative shared on Bored Panda previously, where the taste is awful, but the execution is great.

Although failed designs are sure fun to look at and try to fathom how they happened, they also affect our lives in smaller or bigger ways. After the funny part fades away, then follows confusion, then frustration and annoyance. Some design fails can even be hurtful, unintentionally racist or sexist, and in some cases, a bad design can lead to physical harm, such as when a poorly designed machine or tool causes an injury.

This is a great example of how important it is to do a test before reaching a final result. Just imagine how many of these examples could have been avoided, if not all of them. So why do people miss such a crucial step? Well, one of the main reasons is resources. To do a test drive, in some cases, can be time-consuming and expensive, especially for small businesses or individuals who are making, for example, cake for their child’s birthday.

However, keep in mind that the cost of not testing can be even higher. A bad design can waste resources, cost money, and harm a company’s reputation. It may even result in legal liability in some cases if the design causes harm to users.

Overconfidence is another reason why people may avoid testing. They may believe that they have created a design that is error-free and does not need to be tested. This way of thinking can be dangerous because it can lead to the design missing potential flaws and weaknesses.

Luckily, most of the design fails here are rather harmless and will be more of a funny memory than a lifelong injury. It only depends on how you will look at it and whether you will try your best and learn from the failure or keep failing in the future until you do.
