Texas Logos in Comic Sans

If you’re a frequent reader of this website (and I hope you are), you already know of my love of redoing famous logos in ugly fonts like Papyrus, Algerian and Jokerman. For me, there’s something rewarding about distilling a logo or wordmark down to its bare essence. Rendering the logo in a ugly font allows you to better assess the merits of the design. Or maybe it’s just silly and fun. Either way, I decided to focus on Texas logos this time, drawing some of the Lone Star State’s most famous brands in the world’s most infamous font. Here are my top ten Texas logos in Comic Sans.

There are so many iconic brands based here in Texas that it was hard to choose just ten. Some of the companies that didn’t make the cut this time were Dickies, Blue Bell, Neiman Marcus and Southwest Airlines. There are a lot of iconic brands here in Texas, and I could go on all day. However, I like to keep these blog posts short, so I’ll ask you what you’d like to see next. What other Texas logos would you like to see “uglified”? What font should I use next time around? Let me know in the comment section.
