Post Your Worst Designs

You probably have some old designs from way back that just suck eggs. You know, the ones that when you look back in your old, dusty design folders, you think "What the fuck was I thinking?" Yea, those are the ones. I think it'd be fun to post some of them here.


Share with the group. It's okay.

Pretty much my first 6 or so are pretty awful, though it's nice to look back and see my progress. :-) This one started as a weird doodle and ended up being... still weird. And not the good kind.

2.37 for this one. Lol well I thought it was kinda clever

Dude Musarter - That's totally awesome. I actually really like it.

Is the point that you're turned on? Lose the screws and I could see people buying it. Totally subtle/confusing enough to be appropriate to wear in lots of different settings.

I am glad you like it. After subbing it and getting a low score it made me reconsider the design. When I look at it now, it seems a bit phallic and I cannot turn a light switch on without being slightly disturbed.

I came onto Threadless ten years after I first started designing tees, so I feel like my worst Threadless design isn't really a true representation of my rock bottom. I'll have to go scrounging through my old files to find those dusty gems. For what it's worth though, this is my lowest scoring design.

If that is your worst design, it means you are awesome.

Haha, well, thanks for the vote of confidence, but yeah, certainly not my worst design I hope. It's just my lowest scoring Threadless sub. I still really like it, maybe not so much as a tee, but I cut it out of metallic gold and framed it and it currently sits in my garage.

To really get down to the dregs, I've got to take you all the way back to 2001...

when the Phantom Menace was all the rage...

as were tees with signs on them ...

especially if they were crass puns ...

and people thought DJs were inherently cool for some reason ...

and the only thing better than getting blind drunk, was wearing tees about getting blind drunk ( I actually still kinda chuckle at this one) ...

It's a hangman/crime scene I think :P

If I remember correctly, this was taken down early a few years ago.

It was for the 80's-Colored Sharpie challenge? I still kinda like it...

My worst designs either didn't get accepted or finished early and were removed....I'm surprised this one even made it the full 7 days. Eeek

Went to the original sub, and it's called CSI: Recess -- but still can't figure out the word...

HANGsomething is all I got.

I am very recent to threadless, My second design in and ughh... I still love the idea but the idea was extremely, extremely EXTREMELY poorly executed. I did not use any Photoshop whatsoever and took the picture tilted if you can see. AND THE CUT OFF!!! OH NO!
