[Tell me these weren’t deliberate. Never mind all the Illuminist, Freemasonic and Satanic imagery we’re constantly bombarded with in the world of logos, you’ll be shocked at some of the sexualized crap these bastards are pumping into the mainstream mind. – Zen]
(BusinessInsider) After examining a recent spate of bad logo redesigns, we felt that it was time to reflect upon 15 of the most inappropriate and idiotic logo fails ever.
Sometimes companies quickly realize that a logo is a big mistake…While (many are) aesthetic gaffes, there are some logos that are so blatantly inappropriate that we’re wondering how they got past the drawing board.
The London Olympics 2012 logo, which has been accused of resembling Lisa Simpson performing oral sex, is only the beginning of a series of 15 horrible logo designs.
London 2012 Logo
When London unveiled its £400,000 2012 logo design, the masses were unimpressed.
Some claimed that it looks like “some sort of comical sex act between The Simpsons.” (Note the figure resembling Lisa Simpson).
Others opined that the logo resembles a swastika.
On the flip-side, Iran has threatened to boycott the Olympics since they believe that the logo spells out “Zion.”
Pick your poison, but the logo seems to be a resounding fail.
Catholic Church’s Archdiocesan Youth Commission
This was the 1973 logo for the Catholic Church’s Archdiocesan Youth Commission.
Arlington Pediatric Center
Oh no, there’s more?
Who’s approving these logos?
TAP – they don’t hide what they’re up to at all.
Sun Rise Sushi
The concept is a sun rising behind a Japanese tea house.
The product is, well, less serene.
If this logo seems like a company oversight, then think again.
A-Style very intentionally created this dirty (read: buzz worthy) design.
In fact, the logo even came before the product did. After the logo became a guerrilla marketing success, the company began selling tee-shirts.
Coca-Cola wanted to teach the world to sing.
Apparently Sherwin Williams wanted to cover the world in blood-red paint.
The sinister “cover the earth” logo was adopted in 1906.
Some baker got a little too creative.
Direct marketing aimed at those looking to order Skinemax, perhaps?
Believe it or not, Locum is a Swedish property management company.
Gotta love the language barrier.
Proper punctuation should always be encouraged.
The Computer Doctors
The Computer Doctors claim to fix your computer.
You have to go somewhere else to fix your leaky genitalia.
