We can all use a good laugh these days, that’s why we prepared you a list of what not to do while designing a logo while working from home. Hopefully, these logos will put a smile on your faces.
Bad logos might be quite bad for your brand. Your logo is what the people remember you with after all.
There are many different ways you can go with your logo. you have probably identified a business by looking at its logo before, even if their name isn’t on the logo. There are some business logos that when you see them, you can immediately guess what that company does.
Your logo is a huge part of your brand’s identity, it’s probably the first impact on public perception and having a bad logo design could affect your business. World’s multinational companies can spend millions of dollars on their logos – like UK-based oil group BP. They’ve spent £136m back in 2000 when they introduced their current sunflower design.
You probably have come across people posting a logo design job for incredibly low prices on freelancing websites or graphic design communities, and yes, there are people who will design your logo for those prices. It shouldn’t be too much of a shock to those people when they end up with bad logos.
Okay, we understand that there are people who don’t have enough budget, and they are just starting out. You want to get the most out of your business, and logos play an important role, especially if you are just starting and trying to get your name out there. Before having your logo designed, it’s important to learn about the dos and don’t of logo design so you know more about what you are getting into.
Anyway, without further ado, let’s see the worst logos.
