Here's Your Design Sign

Have you ever heard the phrase, "being self-aware"?  It's sort of a buzz phrase that's been circulating around the atmosphere, hovering over the area where several of The Daily Serge writers hail from.  Since you're all super smart readers, and you have access to Google if you're not super smart, I won't spend lots of time hashing out the meaning of being self-aware.  Instead, I'll show you some hilarious examples of companies, advertising execs, designers and otherwise ignorant people* who failed to recognize some inherently funny but wildly inappropriate design failures.  

*I am assuming that these people are ignorant because I have never actually met them.  Unless there was a conversation in the drafting stages of these ads that went something like, "Hey [designer], can you make this logo look like a gorilla is tickling the butt of another gorilla?" then I feel as though the assumption is safe.

If you're squeamish or find innuendos of the sexual nature to be offensive, please skip this week's reading. Be aware that you're missing out on some great stuff though!

Hmm...

We've all had the occasional bad hair cut.  The kind that you look back at after years and years and think, "holy crap.  What was I thinking?".  I wonder how long it will take these companies to share that same sentiment.
