I realize I’m going to probably catch a lot of flack for this one, but I just can’t help sort-of liking this Pay-O-Matic logo. It’s so delightfully odd, with that sad little face. It always reminded me of Pentagram’s Joyco logo (designed by John McConnell), which is also quirky, but still fun and gratifying:
Pay-O-Matic is less happy, of course. And decidedly, inappropriately weird. But I think that’s part of its charm. No?
I’ll leave it up to you guys. Pr*tty or Sh*tty?
(I suppose the debate is irrelevant, since they recently rebranded, but it’s safe to say the new identity is way boringer.)
Thanks to Pentagram for permission to use the Joyco image.
