Art is so subjective; some prefer Abstract where others find beauty in Post-Impressionism. Whatever your particular taste we can all agree that bad art does exist, so why not celebrate it? This Bad Art Logo was created to be all inclusive and help bring a comical spin on the whole bad art world.
Barking Mad Web Collective was born due to the fact it was the name I kept coming back to. Graphically I saw so many possibilities that I was hooked! Wanting something playful and kitschy I started with the idea of a dog in the logo. And once I did further exploration into potential font choices it helped to further refine the image to accompany it. How true it is that sometimes your best ideas are born with the least amount of effort! The tagline I created, “Complex Creativity Mixed with a little Crazy” was a late night addition that fit perfectly even after the sun came up. Not often am I so fortunate as that but it’s great when it does happen that way.
These are various version of the logo created for different purposes such as a facebook header, twitter favicon, or business card usage.
