88 of the Worst Logo Design Fails – Page 7
At this point, it’s like watching a train wreck… you know you should look away, but you Just Can’t Do It!
|No “Bad Logo” list would be complete without one of the more expensive fails of recent history.
When London unveiled its logo design for the 2012 Olympics – which cost a measly £400,000 – most were unimpressed. Some claimed that it looked like “some sort of comical sex act between The Simpsons.”
Others thought that it too-closely resembled a Swastika. Iran even threatened to boycott the Olympics because they believed the logo spelled out “Zion.”
Anyway you look at it, the logo was a resounding – and very expensive – fail.
|What exactly is the symbol in this logo is trying to tell me??? That I should run from this company as quickly as possible? That stick men know more about technology than your average run-of-the-mill man?|
|Neither your personal problems nor your incontinence should become integral parts of your logo design.|
Most of the time, I try to stay out of the political arena when I’m writing about business marketing and branding. However, when it comes to Logo Design Fails, one simply cannot ignore the short-lived but much discussed Donald Trump / Mike Pence campaign logo.
Not only did this logo CAPITALIZE on the fact that the two initials spelled “TP” (aka Toilet Paper), something that any normal designer would have attempted to avoid at all costs.
But, to add insult to injury, the design that was unveiled clearly showed Trump’s T PENETRATING Pence’s P.
Social media influencers had an absolute field day, mercilessly poking fun of the new logo, which was quickly replaced with less suggestive version.
|I’m sorry… what “Truth” will set me free? The truth that your coffee is terrible? Because if your logo is any indication, that is one BAD cup of coffee!|
|Either I just have a very dirty mind, or people simply do a really terrible job of NOT noticing the inappropriate juxtapositions of their stick figures. Maybe it’s both. It’s probably both.
Who needs a dental chair?? Just wrap your legs around me and say Ahhhhh.
|Boobs. There’s nothing else in this logo but Boobs.|
|This logo would make Baby Jesus cry.|
|Oh, look… another testicle shaped Chef’s hat, only this time it’s resting above the rest of the phallus-shaped logo.
And with wings added JUST FOR FUN!
|What kind of weird, droopy, drippy, saggy statement are you trying to make with this logo? No, really… I’m dying to know.|
|Well. It’s colorful.|
