Apparently, an official did question that phallic Women's Network logo

Remember this logo design misfire back in March? The phallic symbol created for the face of the Women's Network (an Australian government department) had onlookers upset and amused in equal parts, and the ironic design was quickly binned. We'd put it down to no-one looking hard enough at the project, but a report shows this wasn't the case.

Recently released documents show that the logo was the subject of a flurry of communication, but the shape was never actually discussed. We recommend they read our how to design a logo guide, pronto. We included the design in our pick of the worst logos of 2022 so far.
