The Gap has redesigned its logo, and the consensus has been lukewarm-to-frosty at best.

In the meantime, GOOD contributor Joe Ippolito has imagined a world overtaken by similar logos. "Here's what would happen if the designer of the new Gap logo was unleashed on the world's most recognizable brands," he writes.
