Designs are made to catch the eye of people walking by, users scrolling through pages… Unfortunately, some of the companies see the visual aspects of their promotion only this way. They try to aim for the most amazingly looking slogan, with a variety of superlatives but they forget about one important thing. The truth.
They forget to deliver what they promise to you on your “first date.” We have prepared 10 of the practical examples when designs simply have failed their consumers.
This post could not be created without the subreddit called r/assholedesign so, If you are interested in looking for more similar cases of this incredibly annoying “trend” just visit their subreddit.

Difference between a small and a large beer
This is the very common way how the pubs try to trick their customers. Cheating like this is very under a class of any decent place. If you know about a place like this we recommend you to stop supporting them and make sure people get to know about their techniques of delusions.
In spite of the fact that glasses are visually different sizes, their volume capacity is pretty much the same!

The Stranger Things spoiling The Stranger Things
Yes, you have read it correctly. For the ones who have not to buy The Stranger Things tv-series and watched it on Netflix – we have news.

Amazon Prime bait
The owner of Amazon is making more money than anyone else in this period. Mr. Bezos is earning even more during the pandemic than at any other time! Here is how their service Amazon Prime Video works – well, more like “doesn´t work.”
Their page offers you to get their Prime package. Once you pay for it, only after that they will make you familiar with whether their title is or is not available in your location.
Meowy Christmas …till forever
Let´s step away from the serious stuff and take a look at some funny ones. Like this Christmas card, which does not want to shut up. Unless the battery runs out…or you just destroy it. If you ask me, I recommend destroying it! It even has a damn glitter on it, you will never get rid of that stupid thing.
Also it´s a perect gift if you hate somebody.
Let´s play “Hide and Seek”
Can you found the “Unsubscribe button on this photo?” I gladly give you minute or two to accomplish this task. Good luck!
How did you do? Have you found it? The “Unsubscribe” button is almost the same color as everything else and that is why you can not find it. The button is placed in the right bottom corner.
