There's no such thing as bad advertisement? Well... This post will put this thought to the test. The ads we're going to show you today range from brutally honest to honestly brutal, and everything in between—they are anything but what the ad commissioners would ask for.
The people at the Design Crowd, a platform for amateur photo editors to share their works, have put their skills to the test in a contest where they had to create bad ads. The theme produced hundreds of submissions over several iterations, and we have gathered some of the best ones that we could find.
Even though the quality of these submissions is not professional by any means, remember that everyone even remotely good had to start somewhere. So feast your eyes on the bad designs, unpleasant truth, and quirky humor, and try to enjoy yourself.

This isn't the first time that Design Crowd's competitions have made it to Fashion Life. Many themes have been featured, like broken bounds of classical paintings, exaggerated objects in cities, animals as plants, and many more crazy and creative topics. If you're only starting with Photoshop, it's a great source of inspiration.
If you like what Design Crowd has to offer, visit their website. Even though the site has been inactive in recent years, it was once a very lively community of amateur Photoshoppers. There are still many archived contests and uncovered subjects to check out, so please do.
