Is this really the most offensive logo of 2021?

We saw a ton of new logos in 2021, and plenty that offended our design sensibilities. But when it comes to "offensive" logos, perhaps the worst of the year was the only design to receive a police complaint. Yes, you read that right.

Indian fashion website Myntra was forced to replace its symbol with a subtly tweaked (but not altogether different) design after a complaint was filed with Mumbai Police’s cybercrime department. Apparently the design "resembled a naked woman" – now, we don't know about you, but our minds never went there in the first place. But once it's been pointed out, erm, we guess, okay, maybe. Many of the best logos of all time feature secret messages, but none quite as provocative (and, we hope unintentional) as this one.
