Reverse image search says it's a failed Power Rangers show.

Eh, I wouldn't call the RPM logo "associated with failure", since RPM was actually a really good show. Man, if you want a real example of Power Rangers and failure...

RPM was the worst Power Rangers series. Period.

 

OO on the other hand, is not really as bad as people claim.

It's unfortunate that they are likely dead by the end of this month but I wouldn't *quite* call them a failure. More of a victim of circumstance, in my mind at least.

 

They had a few things going for them and could've at least made it to their championship game had the virus not made as much of an impact.

Not sure how all of those are "associated with failure".

 

  • The WFL?  Is that logo really associated with failure?  Was the WFL truly considered a failure?
  • I don't know the story behind the Target one - help me out?
  • The 2020 NFL Draft?  First, it's the same logo that's been used for lots of drafts, so hardly associated with just 2020.  I don't consider the date a significant part of the design.  Second, it's the highest rated draft ever, and is receiving a ton of praise, and at worst, has inspired a lot of discussion.

Indeed. This year's NFL draft has been just fine. And today's coverage of the late rounds looks essentially the same as any other years. What's the failure, outside of a low-effort joke?

Target lasted 2 years in Canada before they closed shop.

 

Really?  I didn't know that.  Any reason why?  Is there already a national competitor that they couldn't unseat?

Target Canada was ultimately unsuccessful, with an overly-aggressive expansion initiative, in addition to higher prices and a limited selection of products compared to Target stores in the United States (from Wikipedia)

 

It also cited other competitors like Walmart, LoBlaws, and Shoppers Drug Mart (both are local chains), as well as Canadian Tire, contributed to Target Canada's eventual demise.

Here's a really good, comprehensive read on why Target failed in Canada: https://www.canadianbusiness.com/the-last-days-of-target-canada/

 

The main reasons are summed up in the first paragraph: "The company was having trouble moving products from its cavernous distribution centres and onto store shelves, which would leave Target outlets poorly stocked. The checkout system was glitchy and didn’t process transactions properly. Worse, the technology governing inventory and sales was new to the organization; no one seemed to fully understand how it all worked."

 

Speaking as a Canadian consumer, though, Target was underwhelming. We were expecting something akin to what we saw in U.S. Target stores when we crossed the border; instead they more closely resembled the Zellers stores whose leases Target took over.

Okay, so the failure aspect of this entire thread is one big failjack with limited results, but here's a rebrand that cost the already successful company $35 million to roll out and another $20 million in lost sales.

The story behind it is pretty interesting as well.

Honestly I prefer the rebrand. The current look screams late 2000s to me.

I don't know why I haven't thought about this one! This goes it to my friends in Cleveland, especially on the West Side!

With the rise of Avon Commons and Crocker Park, this place is 💩. I live less than 5 miles from it and I never go there. All of the anchor stores have left and there is hardly any traffic there. It's slowing dying, and it needs to die and be redeveloped.

I have zero confidence Infiniti is going to survive this economic collapse. my confidence for Nissan as a whole to survive is only marginally higher.

MAD Magazine's New Facial Recognition - Print Magazine

Mad Magazine gave their magazine a facelift in 2018, and changed their logo to this (which is a more squashed version of their original logo from the 50s)

In July 2019, it was announced that beginning with issue #11 of the Mad revival, subsequent issues would include reprinted content from its previous 67 years of publication. Mad will no longer be sold on newsstands, but will remain in comic book shops.

 

So yea was only a year before they basically called it quits (well new material at least)
