A new customer asked me to design a new website for the company, but the company logo is somehow childish (think comic-sans like fonts). Redesigning the logo is a no-go.
I’m not sure how to make the design work to mix this logo with a sober, corporate design for the website.
Do you have any ideas or samples of people doing the same?
The client-has-an-ugly-logo is a common problem. The typical solution is to avoid making it prominent. Build off of or create other visual brand elements. Explore photography and illustration as being primary visuals. Shrink the logo. Move it lower on the page. Make it one color. Etc, etc.
