    Can You See What Is Wrong With This Logo?

    I forget how I stumbled upon this web site, which is for the manufacturing industry.

    http://www.mfg.com/

    When I saw the logo, I had to chuckle to myself. Can you guys spot what is wrong with it?

    to be honest, no i can't, you might have to spell it out OMG, now i get it

    i'm not a logo guy so i don't pay much attention to them, but i did save one that i found particularly noteworthy -- unfortunately i can't remember the site i got it from (probably just as well, eh)

    yeah, i couldn't believe that it actually got past the logo designer's management -- i mean, senior execs had to approve it, right?

    Yes, but is your average high-powered exec "in-tune" with all these little LOL, PMSL, RTFM acronyms that "the kids" use?

    probably not

    but your comment applies more to the original poster's MFG logo

    my comment about how it got past management referred to the logo that i posted

    you don'ts needs acronyms to see something wrong with it, do you?

    For the one for mfg.com, look at the shape of the logo, and replace it with the letter equivilant.

    For the one Rudy posted, perhaps it's my warped senses, but it looks like a couple people getting rude to me.
