New Year is a time for new beginnings, resolutions, and improvement. You take lesson from previous mistakes and make sure they don’t happen again, in any shape and form. For logo designers, it’s even more important that they take lessons not only from personal mistakes but also from what other logo designers do.

If you followed our post on the winning logos of crowdsourcing websites, then here are some examples you should see of what is NOT to be done in 2013. The sequence is not based on any particular rating as they are all pretty much hideous designs.

Hope these will serve as a good lesson! Enjoy! ;)
