    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 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?

    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:
