With the end of the year around the corner, we're reflecting on the many logo designs we've seen in 2021. From stunners to shockers, we've seen designs across the entire quality spectrum – and here's one that fell squarely into the latter camp thanks to its rather unfortunate resemblance. 

Calendar and scheduling tool Calendly revealed a new logo that was allegedly designed to the tune of $1.5M this year. Clearly the company was feeling flush – which might explain why the symbol looks so much like a birds-eye view of a toilet. We were truly bowled over by this design, and not in a good way. Not in a best logos of all time kind of way.
