I had no idea so many examples of bad qraphic design existed! You would think that the creators of these websites, magazine spreads, and logos would be able to see their blatant graphic design errors…, but they don’t. Fortunately for the rest of us, we can laugh at their blunders. After searching bad graphic design on Google, I had a hard time choosing just three examples. Here are the finalists:
So, I don’t know about you, but this web design hurts my eyes. First off, there is just WAY too much going on. There are too many colors, too many fonts, etc. My eye has no idea where to look first. Another bad characteristic is that you can’t tell what is information and what is advertising. The LG advertisement just blends in with all of the other squares of color.
This graphic design is a bit better than the last one. (But, it can only go up from there.) Much like the last example, this graphic design does not let your eye know where to look first. But, the large photo does help the eye focus despite the large amount of text. On the plus side, this design only includes two colors and a few fonts.
In comparison with the other two examples, this logo does not appear to be that bad. The colors are bold and grab the viewer’s attention, but the text can cause some confusion. You can’t readily tell what it says, and that’s a problem. For those of you who still can’t decipher it, this is the logo for the 2012 Olympics in London. Any logo, especially one for the Olympics, should be very easy to read.
