Don’t Mind If We Do

by Sovereign of Spew on April 14, 2011

It’s the only way that we can handle this logo, really. To follow the instructions that it’s laying out for us. GET IT?

If I Must

Poor barfer Sara passes this every day on the way to work. If only Sara could be stoned too. Then the utter obviousness of this logo might be tolerable. GET IT? IT’S A BEE ON A STONE! BSTONED!

A Festivus Miracle!

by Earl of Hurl on December 20, 2010

In the holiday spirit, I’d like to air my grievances against Tan Cun, our final tanning salon logo entry for the time being.

Strike 1: You named your salon as if you’re designing joke business ads for the school paper.

Strike 2: Then you made two of your six letters into objects. A third of your logo is a visual pun.

Strike 3: Finally, the whole goddamn thing is sitting on an island. This is ridiculous.

Big Daddy Will Get You Out of Prison

by Earl of Hurl on December 16, 2010

Probably a coincidence: Your business’ name reads aloud as “Aryan Son” and you have a lightning bolt – a symbol often used in the white power movement – in your logo.

Regardless, I expect Big Daddy to be a guy I meet in jail, not the one who bails me out.

This Spa is a Triple Threat

by Earl of Hurl on December 8, 2010

1. Weird hand which may be made up of manicurist’s tools. It’s a smidge too serial-killery for my tastes.

2. Papyrus.

3. Name fail. They fess up to having a “snappy” name on their website, but this doesn’t not absolve them of a total name fail.

We caught this on Lamebook last week. It’s not like us to recycle content – we’re “lucky” enough to find ample shitty logos on our own and through the Barf Bag. This one just called loudly enough that I knew it needed more love.

Nothing Like a Big Bowl of Cok to Start the Morning

by Earl of Hurl on December 8, 2010

To be honest, I’m not sure if this is a name fail or a typo. The logo isn’t even bad – but I can’t look past the cok.

Thanks to Barfer Chris for the submission!

Brown Hand Center

brown hand center

Right, no, I understand, your last name is Brown. Uh-huh. Uh-huh. Yeah. This is still a terrible idea.

It’s a logo for a carpal tunnel center, by the way. Obvious, isn’t it?

I’m sorry. Whenever I see images of fertility deity Kokopelli my mind turns to mush and I just hear those tiny mice in Disney’s Cinderella singing “Cinderelly, Cinderelly”.

And so, tiny-mouse song cheering me along, I bring you this collection of Kokopelli logos. You’ll learn that he is a versatile deity who loves bike rides, golfing, and long walks on the beach.

The field of Kokopelli logos is a fertile one – I left out a winery, a brewery, another logo with papyrus (!), a sushi joint, two hotels, another coffee shop, another bike shop, and a nursery. Know of a Kokopelli logo that deserves to be here? Submit it asap to logos@makesmebarf.com.
