From phallic imagery to hidden messages in the Olympics logo, we count thirty hilarious logo design fails!
Arlington Pediatric Center
Good paediatricians can be hard to find, but based on this logo I’m sure the staff at Arlington Pediatric Center will take reaaal good care of your kids. They’ll probably even teach them valuable life skills, like how to spot a paedophile.
This Swedish property management company want you to know how much they like mayonnaise. They like it a lot. Love it, even.
The Computer Doctors
The Computer Doctors begin every consultation by asking computers to remove their pants. They’ve got a killer logo, except for the discharge coming out of that mouse …
Junior Jazz Dance Classes
This ad for junior jazz dance classes is a bit like those ambiguous images used by psychologists. Y’know: is it a duck or a rabbit? Is this an innocent ad for dance classes or a glorious celebration of the female form? Come in today, kids, and find out!
Encebe Meat Products
Meat products! Get your meat products! Encebe have all your hot salami, kransky sausage, and human phallus needs! Just check out there logo, which was surely drawn by a poor third-grader.
Like going to the dentist wasn’t frightening enough for most people, Clinica Dental managed to tap into a whole other host of fears with its spectacularly misguided logo that puts the ‘fun’ in date rape!
Microsoft’s digital media brand Zune failed to compete against Apple’s behemoth, the iPod. Zune just wasn’t cool enough. Even its ‘edgy’ inverted logo failed, as confused consumers misread it as ‘Anus’.
‘What do you mean Anus make shitty music players?’
Apparently this design for the A-Style Clothing logo is intentional. Bold? Provocative? Trying too hard? The fail here is that the company aren’t called ‘D-Style Clothing’. That’d turn a few heads.
The Office of Government Commerce is the UK’s independent Office of Treasury. But perhaps they’re mishandling taxpayers’ funds if this image of a man jerkin’ his gherkin is the best logo they could come up with.
Catholic Church’s Archdiocesan Youth Commission
This 1973 logo won an Art Directors Club Award for outstanding design. That makes sense, though; sexual deviants usually have fairly refined taste in art.
