In 2010, a graphic designer based out of California noticed a trend of local companies crowd-sourcing their logo design to anyone who’d draw them something for free.
The designer, who goes by the online alias of “krs,” sensed a business opportunity. Instead of giving his work away to companies for free, he would draw the first thing that came into his head, and then sell the design for $5. And thus was born Horrible Logos, a three-year-old business through which krs provides companies with guaranteed awful logos in exchange for beer money.
Some of his logos are surprisingly good. I’ll update this post when he sends over my horrible logo.
