United Continental Logo

Recently United and Continental Airlines announced they were merging.

Frankly I didn’t care much about the merger until I saw this photo:

Look at the abomination of a logo on the step-and-repeat banner behind them!

They mashed up the classic United logo (designed by Saul Bass, no less) with the couldn’t-be-anymore-generic Continental logo!

I bet they didn’t even get a graphic designer’s input, they just had some temp retype “United” and bingo, problem solved!

So that’s one more logo to add to my yet-unbuilt “Logo Graveyard” website.

What a waste.
