Bad Design Examples

The samples below highlight some of the major problems we are faced with. Healthy competition is a good thing, but seasoned designers can’t compete for $100 logos and $200 Web sites. Businesses that do not understand the value of design shop for designers like they shop for groceries, and it’s our job as an industry to educate them about the value we provide so that we are not seen as just the “art person.” Elevating our standards begins with design certification and an advocate to promote higher standards, not just within our industry but outside of it as well.
