20 Times Designers Left People Gagging for Some Sense With Their Ludicrous Logo Designs
Out-of-the-box thinking can sometimes backfire. Sure, designers want their designs to stand out from the industry crowd but in the quest to create a unique design, some designers fail so miserably that they become a laughing stock for the onlookers. Being a designer is no joke, so it's better to preview one's work than regret it later.
Unfortunately, some ingenious logo designers have taken avant-garde to a level of hilarity and showcased their logos to the world without thinking twice. No wonder people are left scratching their heads to make some sense of these hysterically weird logos. Although, in the business and marketing world, logo designing is a crucial step in building customer-business relationships. Companies are known to spend millions of dollars to get the eye-catchy logo and for a good reason.
"New market research suggests that there's more to a logo than its basic aesthetic appeal. The study, conducted by an international team of researchers, suggests that people make complex assessments of a company or product based merely on the shape of the logo," per APS (Association for Psychological Science). For this reason, designers can sometimes go overboard in creating unusual logos that fail to connect consumers with the brand. In fact, it leaves people baffled by the complexity of the design and the disconnect then makes people laugh at the absurdity.
