We should have a thread where we share images of bad graphic design.

I'm not talking about poor aesthetics (Comic Sans, gradients, etc.) That's subjective. I'm talking poor photoshop jobs, oversights and other things like this. Does that make sense?

I'll start with this.

From a distance it looks good, but when you look a little more closely, you'll notice that the black on the Power logo has disappeared into the wood (is it wood?) background, but it hasn't on the Magpies logo. Not huge, but it is noticable, and it's inconsistent.

I know you're referring to their graphic templates where the stitching flies off the guernsey, is generally uneven and whatever, but it'd be good if you could locate some pictures to match this for people who view the thread and aren't aware of what you're talking about.

Well, this is probably 'subjective' like Stormy said in the OP. But 'The Navy Blues' facebook page is shit with their cover photos and profile pictures:

And then Costa's Carlton logo got a run on the cover photo:

Right, now Profile pictures:

That counts, Ando. That's ******* terrible quality. Very unprofessional, but what do you expect for a club like Calrton? :p:fire:

Google search Office of Government Communications logo. That's bad graphic/logo design.
I'm not sure if I'm looking at the same thing. When I google it it comes up with this.

And also the fact that "you just gotta love" makes no grammatical sense whatsoever.
