16 pictures that prove design is important

Design is a fundamental part of our lives. Almost every object that you have in front of you was not only made by someone, it was designed by a person or group of people. Nothing unusual in that, but sometimes there's a problem — people want their designs to be super smart, modern and inventive. They want to leave something that really stands out. Often, they succeed, but sometimes it's for all the wrong reasons, as these 16 examples show...

We don't want to be harsh here, but what were these designers thinking when they decided "Let's do it like this!"? But even if their designs were no good for what they originally intended, at least they make life a little less boring, right?
