Logo Parodies Reveal Big Brands’ Darker Sides [Pics]

Logo Parodies Reveal Big Brands’ Darker Sides [Pics]

Universal Unbranding takes a different look at the popular symbols of our society.

Leah Gonzalez

Creatives or just about anyone with a  sense of humor are always fond of making their own versions of the logos, signs and symbols of popular companies and large corporations.

Maentis, a Paris-based design studio, has come out with their own project that pokes fun at some well-known and familiar logos and brand symbols.

Universal Unbranding is a series of images featuring a different side of company logos.

Some examples of the logo parodies include the IKEA logo depicted as disassembled parts of a furniture, the Lacoste logo as a handbag made of crocodile skin, and the McDonald’s as a supersized letter M.
