Star Shaped People

When lazy designers are working with companies with “empower” in their mission statement, they often get lazy and drop in Star Shaped People to illustrate to us just how effing empowered these empowered people are. This is our collection of logos featuring Star Shaped People Denoting Empowerment.

American Financial Boobies

MJ pointed out something quite intersting about this logo. We daresay sexy.


This innocent star shaped man has no idea that he’s cozying up to perhaps the biggest breast ever. Not only that, his head is a nipple! Wow. That’s gotta be someone’s sick fantasy.

HEY! We’ll thank you to focus back on Financial Concepts and stop staring at the cleavage. How rude.

Gluteous Barficus

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.

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.

Double alphabet objects and a star-shaped person top off a business named using ‘Solutions‘ for the fail!

Sacrificial Design

by Earl of Hurl on January 25, 2011

Faithful readers will know that we don’t just pick on bad logos – there’s a special place in our hearts for badly named businesses. We’ve explored “by design“, and now, by request, we’re moving on to “solutions”.

Adiant Solutions has the honor of kicking off this category. Their mascot seems to be trying to dive between us, sacrificing himself as a human shield against bad design and lazy business naming.

That’s Not Very Nice

by Earl of Hurl on January 11, 2011

This logo comes to us via Jason, who wonders if perhaps Mor(t)on Comprehensive Health Center isn’t taking a covert dig at their clientele.

It’s a Carnivale! Of Copying!

by Earl of Hurl on January 10, 2011

After the post on Rio’s Olympic logo debacle and the follow-up post with another star-shaped-group of people playing ring around the rosy, Barfer Gary brought another incident to our attention.

This is the logo from Carnivale 2004.

In the end this blog may have the best answer: too many people looked too long at Matisse.
