Fun With Bad Design, Part 297



Okay, I’m sure that the “Do It For Your Baby” campaign has unimpeachable goals, and it may even help save lives. That’s not the issue here. The issue is that because of the poor design and font choices, it looks like their URL is “Dolt For Your Baby”. Which I’m sure many people are, but you don’t get them into your cause by reminding them of that fact.

It really doesn't help that the stock-photo baby looks sort of like a dolt as well.

Those two instructions seem so randomly associated. Do it for your baby! Hear what whooping cough sounds like! Add butterscotch to cake batter for a surprising taste twist! Remember remember the Fifth of November!

Nah- The thing you're supposed to do for your baby is to hear what whooping cough sounds like. Once you do that, you and your baby are Jake.

Yes! I thought Dolt For Your Baby and wondered what it meant. My first thought was it might be some kind of wacky T shirt site, but for babies. Then I wondered what whooping cough had to do with anything.

I like to do it, but not for babies.

Hopefully not WITH babies, either.

The baby is actually kind of cute -- I think it's the wifebeater/denim vest and perp walk scowl on his face that's problematic. Who the hell vetted that photo?

I appreciate the effort the designer put into finding the one ugly baby in America.

The one ugly baby? Most of the little critters are fairly hideous -- and this one looks like Bill O'Reilly, which just makes it worse.

That baby would prefer it if the haters would step off.

Look at that baby! Smart as a whip! That's a penny you owe him.
