The Logo Design Blog casts a nonpartisan critical eye on the 2008 presidential candidates' logos and--with one exception--finds them bland, awkward, confusing, and even "a design nightmare." The weirdest example has to be former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore's logo, which features a backward apostrophe, a redundancy (Gilmore for President/Jim Gilmore), and a big capital "G" for ... what, exactly? God? Goodness? "G"-rated?
On the other hand, witness the perfect harmony of style and substance in this logo:
Cthulhu (pronounced Ka-thoo-loo), a fictional creation of H.P. Lovecraft, is known alternately as "the Thing that cannot be described" and "the green, sticky spawn of the stars"; Lovecraft described him/it as having "an octopus-like head whose face was a mass of feelers, a scaly, rubbery-looking body, prodigious claws on hind and fore feet, and long, narrow wings behind." Not so good in the baby-kissing department, but in televised debates Cthulhu would kick some serious tentacle.
