AIRBNB LOGO

Before the company moves here, we would like its logo to look a little less like testicles.


PORTLAND AIRPORT CARPET

 The old design is a classic and actually symbolized the airport. The new one is just enough like the old one to remind us how much worse it is.


NIKE JORDAN MELO M10 "NORTHWEST KING SALMON"

In "Wings," Macklemore decried the materialism of shoe culture. Well, these bright pink things definitely prove his point.


WILLAMETTE WEEK LOGO (2007)

"Your new logo looks like a twisted swastika. You actually PAID someone to design that for you???!" —"Zarwen"


LIGHT-UP SPELLING SIGNS
(Oso, Richmond Bar, Spirit of 77, Lardo)


NEPENTHES

The worst part of these gross sex-toy-looking things in Old Town is that they light up, assaulting our eyes even under the sweet cover of darkness.


"FEELIN' THORNY?" PORTLAND THORNS T-SHIRT

It was only available in baby-doll sizes, so there was no way to claim it was anything but offensive.


"KEEP KIDS SAFE" LICENSE PLATE

Keep them safe by making sure they don't get mowed down in the crosswalk by a speeding Heartmobile.
