Websites, logos, user interface components and icons can — and often do — get rejected by clients and bosses for various reasons. But that doesn’t mean they’re not great designs.
In fact, I’d like to show my appreciation of some excellent designs on Dribbble (a community site for designers to show their work) that didn’t make the cut for reasons like “it doesn’t fit in our design” or “it’s not what we are looking for.”
By the way, if you’re interested in seeing more rejected designs, check out Dribbble’s#rejected keyword tag.
The Rejected Designs
Graphic designer Ross A. Whelan made the awesome badge logo concept for a food TV show and says that he was “a little heartbroken” when he found out that it was rejected.
The piece features great typography, creative use of a fork and knife referencing the nature of the show and has a nice vintage look.
