Shit school logo

Great Yarmouth is one of Britain's biggest shitholes.  Agreed the logo is shite.  Some graphic designer was probably paid a few grand for that.

Which he clearly spent on alcohol before doing the job.

(Or from a previous thread, was one of my design interviewees taking the piss)

No wonder that lion has that look on his face - he has a fish up his bum!

Is it a lion?

I thought it was Worzle Gummage morphing into a mermaids arsehole.

That looks fine to me, clearly has heraldic origins. The worst are the latest fad in graphic design logo ones, shit to start with then age terribly (letters, swooshes, landscapes, that sort of thing)

Its not the actual heralrd -w hwcih is fine. Some half lion/half fish thing.

 

Its the fact that school, in order to create this historic sign, have hired some idot who's just stuck half n half together, not bothering to join up the bodies.

 That's how heraldry is, it's stylised not naturalistic.

The lions got half a foot.

I like proper version - half sea.

The school version - unpaid intern with cheap graphics package.

I agree, it takes a certain level of high-end stupidity or disinterest to fuck it up as much as they did for the school logo

Having said that, as the client I'd never have accepted it.

The coat of arms is exactly how I would have done it.

If the fish and the lion had matched up the school board would have said the designer person copied it from the other one and they wouldn't pay a fee for that.  It had to appear original even if it was just copied.  

Isn't it a bit isty though (species- ist?) and I expect fish lovers would rather the fish was in front or at least side by side.  Maybe the lion should have scales and gills or the fish fur and claws?

The Lion-Fish shite is the result of talentless Media/Marketing managers and their in-house, zero-ambition, ‘do what their told’ graphic designers from pack-em-in (high profit) university design degrees.
