Have you seen the Canada 150 logo yet? If you haven’t, you likely will over the next 12 months because it’s going to be displayed across the country as part of Canada’s sesquicentennial.
What the hell is it?
If you go to the Government of Canada’s website, you can find an explanation but that’s usually a huge fail in the graphic design business if you have to dig up a written explanation to determine what it is you’re looking at.
Watch as I explain what it is and take a look at some other logo fails courtesy of government and political parties.
When you see them all in one place, you too might ask yourself, why is it that so many governments and government-run agencies screw-up so often when it comes to logo design?
Perhaps it’s just a matter of “business as usual” when one combines the words “government” and “screw-up.”
