7 Graphic Design Fails (#6 will have you scratching your head!)

I’m the first to admit my graphic design talents are average.

In fact, I often struggle deciding whether to match my socks to my shoes or pants!

That said, I have spent 25 years working with amazing designers from around the world, and that’s at least taught me to pick a graphic design fail a mile away.

Here’s seven of the best graphic design fails:

1. Anti drug pencil? Or subliminally a pro-drug pencil?

anti drug marketing

2. If people are driving by at 60 km/h, then what’s fair? Three words max?

3. Fruit was made for eating. Not type-setting.

4. Clip art’s dead, right?

Graphic design is so important to how a business presents itself to the world.

That’s why I leave graphic design to the experts.
