Small Business Logo Failures
“Hey assholes, why don’t you pick on someone your own size, huh? These small businesses are the backbone of America and making fun of them makes you a TERRORIST!” – Summary of everyone that’s ever yelled at us for criticizing small business logos.
Yeah, well, we wish the backbone of America would straighten up and get some decent marketing. It’s an integral part of running a good business, and these logos really aren’t helping anybody.
Alex sent along this little gem.
WELCOME BACK, BY DESIGN! WE MISSED YOU!
Yes, one of our most infamous, hated trends, by design. A fail all on its own. Though, I must also make the observation that no matter how tempting making a logo out of initials might be, if you initials then form a butt, you have failed. Butts by Design. Cut and print.
Right. “Good enough” isn’t…good enough. We both agree on this. Then why do I get the distinct impression someone slapped this logo together and the company gathered ’round and said, “Eh…Good enough. PUT IT ON THE TRUCK!”
Thanks to an anonymous Barfer for sending this’un in.
Metal Heath Gym thinks it’s very clever.
Who needs to be smart when you’ve got PECS OF STEEL? I think if this guy existed in real life, he’d probably have to walk on all fours.
I’m not entirely sure that this is a logo. This design is the equivalent of when your cat walks on your keyboard during a chat session.
That’s quite a… utensil you’ve got there.
Barfer Rachel sent this our way, and thankfully so. Before now, we did not know that penis pens actually existed. They DO! And they are in use at Deosaie Articles. You learn something new every day.
Thanks to Barfer Julianna for sending in this spa’s logo:
She lays it out for us:
Strike 1- Papyrus
Strike 2- Intersecting words
Strike 3- Papyrus (so bad, it counts twice)
This logo was submitted by an anonymous barfer.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but all I can see in this logo is a butt. Tilt your head to the right. Wait….. see it? It’s a butt with a stick figure tattooed on it!
If nothing else, this gives me a great idea for my next tattoo. Also: how not to design a logo.
