Neil Young, the owner of the Dirty Bird brand, which visits festivals and events around Wales, says it is just a clever way of making the “d” and “b” of the company name look like a rooster. But some customers are really shocked by it. One said:
“I was queueing up with my two young sons when I looked at the logo and realised what it represents. It is not the sort of thing that should be on display around children.”
The company also has huge posters asking customers to ‘Touch My Thigh’ and ‘Touch My Breast’. But Dirty Bird denies the company tried to make the logo phallic.
“The identity is based on the lowercase initials ‘d’ and ‘b’ of Dirty Bird. The loops forming the wings, then linked together at the top to form the shape of a rooster. To some, it could look phallic, but that wasn’t the intention when we started the design process.”
Yeah, right. The poster below, EAT COCK is featured on logo designer, Mark James’s Tumblr page. You be the judge, Judy.
