This logo reminds me of the offerings that get served up here as a joke. Unfortunately this is not joke. Is this the worst official logo of all time?

It's even got the little crown on top that was so popular in this (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=188477) thread.

.Andy, regarding your edited post, did you mean that the WCC site doesn't allow images to be linked to. Is that what leeching is?

OMG :eek: Could have fooled me into thinking it was a joke. I'm trying to find some sense of design going on there..

It would make a good competition. How many things can you find wrong with this logo...

Possibly the two worst individual howlers are the red white and cyan/blue? slash, I presume it's meant to be the russian colours, but the designer seems to have forgotten that white doesn't show up too well on a white background and made it a very light shade of grey instead. Also the words 'world championship' appear to be gratuitously and randomly coloured blue or black.

LOL, I would not know were to begin. Looks more like a dagwood sandwich than a logo.

I'm... enthralled.

There is so much... stuff... going on that it goes so far past bad, that it *almost* makes it back around the circle to some strange kind of good.

It's complete drek.



Unless it's phenomenal genius. :rolleyes:
