Each year this list gets less and less juicy with very few clunkers, which is a good thing for our visual environment as the bigger companies, products, and services all around the world are upping their game. There was a lot of work in the Reviewed section that wasn’t super great or super fun with a lot of things ringing in as fine or boring at worst but few were truly appalling. Even the three identities that share the dubious honor of being included here are not truly, awfully the worst, but I guess we have to judge a bit on a curve here. We’ll have a few more train wrecks in the Worst Noted list so for now, here are the Worst Reviewed.
The U.S. Navy squeezed in right at the end of the year with a logo that, on the surface, is mostly okay, but sinks to the bottom of the ocean with a very poorly conceived eagle drawing that is all kinds of sloppy. When it comes to American government agencies there is one thing that needs to be executed to perfection — regardless of concept (concept can be crap but at least it has to be well executed crap) — and that’s the eagle. In this case, it falls way short of proper, professional execution.See original post
Not to repeat myself too much from the original review but you might see this logo and wonder what’s so bad? On the surface it’s fine, but scratch a little and there is really nothing there but the spaghetti that stuck to the wall after throwing it all.See original post
The wordmark of this logo I actively hate and dislike. It takes the hard geometry approach to its least logical and appealing extreme. The somewhat entertaining eye candy in the identity sort of saves the day but it’s hard to get past this ghastly wordmark.See original post
