Rejected logo designs

Because sometimes the creative process is messy
  1. Design something with a bullet
    Not exactly what I had in mind
  2. Too literal?
  3. The original list-maker
    1) Ho. 2) Ho. 3) Ho.
  4. That's really inappropriate
    Besides, won't Myspace sue?
  5. Pandering to the programmer crowd
  6. List + Article = Listicle
    You know, like Buzzfeed? Oh, nevermind
  7. Forthcoming corporate merger?
