DIRTY BIRD

OK, a word about that logo above for “Dirty Bird Fried Chicken”. Yes, this is real and was designed for a catering company food truck in Cardiff, Wales. Most agree the logo appears phallic, however this was unintended. Mark James, the logo’s designer insists it’s supposed to be a barnyard bird.

“We were given the name Dirty Bird as the brief, and started working on ideas. We looked at the initials, DB. Then worked with the lowercase ‘db’ linking them to form the shape of a rooster. It’s a graphic representation of a rooster incorporating the initials. It depends on how you look at it,” he said, “I’m not sure there have been any complaints. A few comments, but it’s in the eye of the beholder, as they say.”

I don’t know if the chicken is good, but I do know they sell quite a few dirty bird tee shirts.
