We see some excellent logo designs here at Creative Blok, but we also see some logos that stand out for all the wrong reasons. And this horrifying eye pain is one of them. Apparently designed for a plastic surgeon, the logo has just been discovered by Reddit, and designers are sticking knives inside.
Equally hilarious and terrifying, it looks more like the logo of a serial killer than a surgeon and has been compared to a monster from Monsters Inc.’s Mike Wazowski or Johnny Quest. It would probably kill anyone who has the knack to go under the knife, but if you’re looking for a surgeon who will let you pierce a giant Cyclops-like eye with a carving knife, this is the provider for you. Maybe (see our guide on How to Design a Logo, to learn how to get a logo right).
The horrifying logo was posted on Reddit’s r/crappydesign. was shared on (opens in new tab) Phedericus. channel by user named (opens in new tab), who said it was for a plastic surgery company. The company name was not disclosed, nor was the logo actually in use, but we would have been surprised if doctors had any patients.
The design features a giant eye that begins with a huge mouth with straight green teeth that merge into a cheap carving knife. Every decision just feels wrong, from the awkward lids to the lack of symmetry in off-center placement and the varying thicknesses of the two broad crescent shapes, which give the design an even more monstrous one-sided feel.
Other users on Reddit can’t believe their eyes. “I hope the surgeon is better than the designer,” said one person. “It’s bad in such a bizarre way. So many uniquely unfortunate choices were made,” someone added, while another user suggested: “Someone did a quick Google Image search for ‘graphic design principles’ , and their only takeaway was something to gaze upon, but mistakenly it looked like a weird telecommunications company.”
The original poster stated: “It seems like 2-3 ideas randomly smashed together badly. I’ve seen AI-generated stuff with much better colors and shapes, it’s just… Plain damn.” And Federicus to prove it (opens in new tab) DALL-E 2 had drawn some logos for a plastic surgery company, with equally dire results.

With its Cyclops-meets-clown feel, this design is definitely a contender for our pick of the Worst Logos of the Year.
