It made me think how important it is to have people proof-read or double-check logo ideas. Whether it’s a church logo or a personal business logo — have people read it, make sure it’s legible and clear. That way, you won’t end up with a weird loopy “D” logo like Disney did. Because although a lot of people grew up wondering what that loopy character was, we all still recognized it as Disney — that could have been avoided…
