Bi-Weekly Blog Round-Up

Hello everyone! 


Hatchwise’s headquarters are located in Connecticut, which as we speak is squarely in the path of Hurricane Henri, the growing storm that’s currently working its way toward the eastern coast of the United States. So suddenly we’re all busy stocking up on bread and milk, battening down the hatches and making sure the flashlights have batteries in them as we prepare for the storm.

Believe it or not, though, that’s not the most exciting thing happening here at the moment: We’re going to be launching Hatchwise 3.0 next week, our brand new design contest system that’s going to make the process of running or entering a design contest more fun and efficient than ever. We’re super pumped about it and you should be too!

10 Examples of Logo Design Gone Wrong

Brands create logos to exemplify their values, hoping that they will catch on and help to establish an association between the corporate images and their business. These logos must be memorable, attractive, and speak to audiences. And sometimes businesses hit the mark.  Other times, they not only miss it – their aim is so far away from what the image they intended to create for their organizations. 

Sometimes these misses are due to simply being dull. Other times they are wholly inappropriate and work against the values the business encompasses. Here we share ten examples of logo design gone wrong.
