Bad Small Business Logos

Recommended Posts

I went through a few pages of posts in this section (General Design) and was surprised that there was no such thread.

We all know that small business doesn't have to mean cheap crappy identity.

 

So when I saw the attached yesterday, I couldn't help myself... I had to post it... I have this sick sense of humour...

 

So ladies and gentlemen, if you like to share some really bad logos you encounter, feel free to flood this thread.

(If mods feel it's not a very productive thread, feel free to delete it)

The thing I don't get is why isn't the T where that seemingly random triangle is?

Probably because it would "deface" the CN Tower shape (I can't believe I'm "defending" this design...)

I can't think on a single thing that is right about that logo... 

 

Is that some kind of protuberance affixed to the top of the van, designed to align with the portion of the CN Tower that is painted on the side of the van?  If so, that's rather clever.

But, yeah, this logo has nothing going for it.  Still, the lack of a thread on this topic is probably due to the fact that small businesses having bad logos is the norm.

There's no protuberance , this is still the side of the van, the lighting in the picture makes it look like it's the sky, it's not.

That, and the fact that it's kind of punching down on business owners who don't have access to good graphic designers, and probably have no eye for (or software for) graphic design themselves. Small business owners with small budgets and time constraints aren't going to invest much time or money in designing a logo.

 

There's plenty of entities with more resources that have terrible logos/visual identities that we can pick apart. No need to punch down on small businesses.

Working at a place that does screen printing, embroidery  etc. 90% of the buisnesses and sports teams that come through have terrible logos. The 10% that are any good ere generally the simple 1 or two colour logos that can be made on things like paint etc.
