Hot Mess

They threw everything but the kitchen sink in these logos. Mismatched clip art, rainbows, lens flares, 40 fonts…it’s a hot mess.

Salon Mess

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.

There are No Words

by Sovereign of Spew on February 3, 2011

I really just have no idea where to start.

WTF-ABA 2008

So, are those yellow shapes a baby? Is the red crescent an elbow? A breast? Are the breasts right below the stars? Is that two people? IS THAT A FACE? I’m getting faint. WHAT IS IT?

I’m all for breastfeeding, don’t think I’m anti. I just think that it should be a mother breastfeeding a baby, not a crescent moon breastfeeding an alien.

We Know How Things Fit Together

For example:

Star Shaped Person-G-N Logo

This star-shaped person fits together AWESOMELY with this scary brush stroke text and these words in a circle.

Thank God someone around here is the solution.

We Will Jam Our Marketing IN YOUR EYE

by Earl of Hurl on January 12, 2011

This anonymous Barf Bag submission is all kinds of hot mess.

I see the letters of “in” jammed together for no reason, lens flare, and OH YES – this logo seems to be happening to someone’s face.

Anything I missed?

We often receive submissions of bad website headers like this.

They aren’t really logos, but people have certainly chosen to represent their business poorly when they made a banner that’s little more than the business’ name typed out in a crappy font.

Today, we received a logo that is a bad website header brought to life. Thanks to an anonymous cell phone submission for the hot mess that is ASH Services, LLC’s actual logo mashed up with a disparate font and weird spacing choices.

I count: Papyrus, a drop shadow, and…just what is that new font? It’s got a jungle-themed birthday party invitation feeling that I’m finding very festive.

Let’s not and say we did

by Viceroy of Vomit on November 10, 2010


They should set those little yellow people to work on the rest of the logo, the “com” is the least ugly part of that whole thing. Imagine what they could do for “Let’s Web”!

A belated thank you to the extremely handsome, incredibly intelligent, and undeniably charming Aaron for sending this our way.

A Fiery Pile of Vomit… for Your Car.

by Sovereign of Spew on November 5, 2010

There is NO LIMIT to how EXTREME is.

in FIRE.

Not only will they wrap your car, and indeed the world, they will also apparently vomit on it and set it on fire. That’s what I call full service. Thanks, Anonymous, for submitting this to us. Keep them coming!
