Top 10 Funny Logo Fails

Marketers say that one of the most important marketing tools is a good company logo design. It not only provides an easy to recognize identity for your business but also communicates who you are. That’s why every company considering creating or buying a logo design should know the criteria that make for an effective logo.

The first feature of a good and effective logo is that it can immediately “grab” viewer’s attention. Your logo should have an immediate impact and hold the viewer’s attention.

However, if you did manage to catch the viewer’s eye – that doesn’t necessarily mean you are doing good. There might always be some hidden pictures, usually inappropriate ones, that you cannot see at first sight.

Here’s a list of Top 10 Funny Logo Fails of all time which probably didn’t look so bad at first glance.

Catholic Church’s Archdiocesan Youth Commission

This is an actual logo designed in 1973 for the Catholic Church’s Archdiocesan Youth Commission. It even won an award from the Art Directors Club of Los Angeles.

Office of Government Commerce

The Office of Government Commerce (OGC) is an independent Office of the Treasury. Sometimes you need to shift your view to realize the error.

A-Style Logo

The A-style logo was born well before the line of clothing – designed in 1989 and marketed in Italy since 1999. It was, in fact, an invention of his creator who began to attack Italian cities with stickers on a yellow background with A-Style logo, followed by other cities including Miami, Moscow, and London.

Pepsi

While all this might look like a joke, it gets even funnier when you look at the Pepsi Max logo. It has nearly twice the caffeine of Pepsi’s other cola beverages. We’re not sure what drinking Pepsi Max is supposed to do for you, but based on what it did to this guy’s tummy here, we’d suggest staying away from it.

Mont-Sat

Now you know why Mr. Satellite looks so happy.

Institute Of Oriental Studies

Not 100% sure about what they are studying for, butt may interest some people out there!

Dirty Bird Fried Chicken

Dirty Bird recently left people squawking over this logo in Cardiff

The flappy bird has also been distributing posters with the wording ‘Touch My Thigh’ and ‘Touch My Breast’.

Arlington Pediatric Center

Just checked their website, and apparently, they have changed their logo to something more pleasing. It’s no longer a paedophilic center. Now it has something to do with crabs (look attentively at letter C). Funny fail again or is it their marketing strategy?

Clinica Dental

Might explain why it’s so damn expensive to go to the dentists these days, although I don’t recall this during my root canal!

Computer Doctors

I have no words. At what point does a computer mouse even resemble the letter U – more like U know what it looks like!
