Top 30 Rude Logos

We have all seen them before –creative logos that have captured our imaginations, burned their brand into our psyches and made us willingly part with our hard-earned cash.

And then there are those bad logos, which are memorable for all the wrong reasons.

At The Logo Company, we specialise in creating professional and memorable logos. Our motto is always to get your logo designed right the first time, so you don’t have to go through the stress and hassle of a re-design further down the road.

We thought we’d take a look at some of the logos around the world that should have definitely considered a re-design before launching to the viewing public. The logos mentioned below all have logos that don’t manage to convey the right message, with some of them (unintentionally) conveying something darn right rude. So, without further adieu, we present to you some of the funniest, rudest and simply wrong logos of the world; that should never have made it past the drawing board.
