• Design Free Thursday // Errors In Production.

    Posted on 22nd November, by Dana Tomić Hughes in random fun. 6 Comments


    How many times have you opened a packet of biscuits and found a random dud which didn’t have a filling…? Or you read a label which was misprinted or not cut properly? Ok, these are pretty lame examples but surely every once in a while you would’ve spotted something dodgy about a product, no? Every time this happens to me, I get such a kick out of it. It’s almost as fun as finding a four leaf clover. Almost. Except I’ve never found a four leaf clover.

    Anyway! Back to dodgy products. Heike Bollig runs a kooky little site called Errors in Production, where she collects a variety of products with manufacturing errors. Looking through her collection definitely made me chuckle.


    “Although I actively seek these objects, I mostly come across them accidentally or friends and salesclerks pass them on to me. In the attempt to further develop the collection and to keep it alive, I would be grateful for your support.” Heike Bollig

    So there you have it. Next time you spot something faulty worth sharing, why not get in touch with Hekie.

    1. That’s seriously an awesome idea! I’ll never look at such products the same way anymore!
