This is not good design...

I want to know who got paid money to come up with this unlovely design for this tissue box. Because I want that job. I'm pretty sure I could do better in my sleep, and I bet they get paid more than I do.
Why is it that tissue companies feel the need to "dress up" their tissue boxes?? Really? Like people use them for decoration? What's wrong with a solid color?

Also, and I didn't realize this until today, there is a lovely poem on the bottom. Lovely, that is, until you get to the last line which is "Blow it loud and blow it proud." Um, eewwwww.....

hehe ... blow it proud? Really? Who thought putting that on there was a good idea?

The other thing about kleenex (or whatever brand) boxes - it's for everyone ... all price points. And they need to have a design that caters to those price points.

Don't all those evil Kleenex design companies realize they are taking good money away from ol' grannies that knit those covers.

How heartless do you have to be to take money from grandmas?

I concur! What kind of weird practice is decorating tissue boxes with awful themes?

Ahahaha! I have a box of those at my desk (in blue) & had never looked at the bottom of them before now! That is disgustingly hilarious.

Blow it out and BLow it Proud??!! That is absolutely hilarious! And yes, I've always wondered at many products such as Kleenex boxes and where they could possibly come up with such unattractive designs.

Cheers,

Aren't they horrible? I found a decent solid option at Target. They don't come in every color, but at least it's not hideous.
