This week, we’re looking way, way back, even as far back as 2007 (wow!), the year tumblr got its start. I know, I know for many of us it is hard to imagine yesterday let alone four years ago. And who would want to?

We’re not sure at what point simply completing a 26.2 mile marathon became too easy for everyone, but it seems every year more and more people find some way of making things much more difficult on themselves by doing something ridiculous.

Things don’t always go as planned. Sometimes during the life of a design or branding concept things gets overlooked or taken out of context, or sometimes the execution isn’t exactly flawless.

Of course these “fails” are not a complete disaster, embarrassment, yes, but at least it can bring a laugh to many, even if it is at our expense. Here are some design fails found from the sites Fail Blog and Epic Fail.
