How many of you have had to deal with a client who had a complete train wreck of a logo but you knew you could never ever talk them into redesigning it because they seem to have some strange attraction or bond to it that utterly defied reason?

*Thousands of hands raise in unison.*

We call this Logo Love – an all too common problem created when people fall madly in love with their logos. Some of the warning signs to help you recognize if your client has this are:

1) Your client becomes defensive, upset, or mad when approached about redesigning their logo.

2) Your client begins to cry when you tell them what you honestly think of their logo.

3) Your client has attempted to put their logo on to a birthday cake (see example):

4) Your client has succeeded in incorporating their logo into any sort of decorative bed covering (see example):

Flaming Barf

If you have a bad logo, why would you think adding flames would make it better? This thing is a hot mess, or maybe just a mess.

True story: growing up one of our dogs would always try to get a little friendly with our cat. That cat absolutely hated that dog.

B is for Boy Who Grew a Tail

Although not the worst logo that has danced across our screens, this mythical amalgamation just leaves
one wondering how that poor child grew a tail and went bald. These guys get an honorable mention for at least not slapping some clipart on there. Woohoo!

Question: Which took longer…designing the actual logo or agreeing that ‘girls’ should be spelled with three ‘r’s and one ‘z’?

(A side note: Check out the oddly misshaped tittle on the letter ‘i’.)
