Another Epic Logo Re-design Fail

What happens when a logo-redesign fails? If you're JCPenney, the CEO gets fired and a former exec reclaims the post as was the case after its epic logo debacle.

Back in 2011, in an effort “to become America’s favorite shopping destination for discovering great styles at compelling prices,” the retailer announced it would be celebrating with a “bold new logo”. That new logo was designed by a third-year graphic design student at the University of Cincinnati.


Nevermind that the winner was crowdsourced, an unsettling trend but one that doesn't seem to be ending any time soon - this was a $17 Billion company thumbing their nose at the process. Fast forward to three years of massive layoffs, alienated customers and a near BILLION dollar loss and they end up right back where they started. (I still don't get how they couldn't see how closely it resembled the Gap's logo redesign - and we know how well that went over).With its new former CEO at the helm and its tail between its legs, JCPenney issues an apology ad

After thoroughly confusing its customers and itself, they dropped JCP and go back to being JCPenney.  I don't know about you, but I've never heard anyone reference it as "JCP," but I have heard "Penneys."  Additionally, the  retailer nixed the "jcp" square logo, and dropped the all lowercase lettering and go back to the logo of 2011. In the end it looks like they're playing it safe - at least for now.

  1. I think the logo must be well creative to satisfy the viewer to take interest in it. There are many logos that is counted in top 10 worldwide. what you have to do is to follow these designs and try to think about the logo. Once you designed it into your mind just create it practically. But it should be noted that the logo must be create in that way that it can explain the type of business. Thanks for posting this article. Logo Designs - Brandedlogodesigns
