10 epic business logo fails – what were you thinking?

Dirty Bird chicken logo that looks phallic

You may be shocked and red-faced when you see these epic logo fails – we’re sure the businesses behind the logos are too!

Seriously, what were you thinking? We can’t quite get our heads around these logos. Was it some kind of Freudian slip, or were the designers getting revenge on a tough client?

1. Dirty Bird Fried Chicken

Dirty Bird recently left people squawking over this logo in Cardiff. Customer Abigail Griffiths said,

“I was queueing up with my two young sons when I looked at the logo and realised what it represents. It is not the sort of thing that should be on display around children.”

The flappy bird has also been distributing posters with the wording ‘Touch My Thigh’ and ‘Touch My Breast’.

2. Doughboys

Doughboys bad logo for business shows a 'd' and a 'b' facing next to each other which looks like a man's genitals

This was Doughboys original logo which didn’t go down too well and didn’t last too long. Diana Cabrera was commissioned to design their more tasteful artwork in 2012.

3. Catholic Church’s Archdiocesan Youth Commission

catholic church youth commission logo shows a blackened silhouette of a priest with a white small child silhouette at hip level to the priest

The Catholic Church’s Archdiocesan Youth Commission logo was designed and released in 1973. We are quite confident that this logo will never be released in the 21st century.

4. Arlington Paediatric Center

Arlington Paediatric Center - logo shows a tall manly silhouette placing his hand on a small silhouette at hip height
Would you take your kid there? Just, no. You failed Arlington. Take it down now!

5. Sun Rise Sushi

weird and very naughty logo by sun rise sushi has a rounded, dark red object supposed to be the sun behind a Japanese-style yellow house - however, it looks totally different

What could we possibly say about this one? If you look real hard you can see that it’s supposed to be a red sun sitting behind a yellow house. But, let’s be honest, it’s not what any of you saw first.

6. A Style

Funny logo fail by 'A Style' has a giant blackened out 'A' with two rounded black spots - which makes the entire thing look like a sexual position
It’s dirty work but A Style are sure to do it. A Style is an Italian clothing manufacturer based in Milan and this logo came before the clothes did, when the company was first established in 1991. This ‘gorilla’ marketing has been long-adopted by the company, with them once plastering this symbol on traffic lights all over Milan.

7. Mont Sat

Mont Sat's logo shows a cheeky-looking satellite dish with a massive rod coming out of a peculiar place
Mont-Sat here, sending all the right signals and demonstrating they have something to be smiling about.

8. The Computer Doctors

the computer doctor logo fail - shows a computer mouse looking phallic

They may call themselves ‘doctors’ but there’s no way they can fix that epic error.

9. Mamma’s Baking

Mamma's baking logo shows a silhouette of an oven - which doubles up to look like a big-busted woman with fire at a rude part on her skirt

That’s one, hot mamma!

10. Destiny

Funny comparison between the Destiny logo and a soldier's crotch

Reddit user Starboy11 made this wondrous comparison of Master Chief’s groin and the new logo for Bungie’s Destiny. Sam Prell shared it on joystiq stating,

“When you’re an artist inspiration can strike from anywhere. A beautiful scene of nature. An abstract form of clay. The crotch of a cybernetic super-soldier.”


  1. I can’t see how No. 1 Dirty Bird Fried Chicken can be considered a fail in any respect. I think its perfect. No. 3. Catholic Church’s Archdiocesan Youth Commission on the other hand. If that is real, its truly incomprehensible.
