Proposed logos for Canada's 150th birthday are shown in a handout photo. The logos are getting decidedly mixed reviews from the first Canadians to see them, with some complaining one looks too much like a hockey puck and another is too Disneyland.There were also complaints about a military theme conjured by a badge-like logo, while another retro design was slammed as too boring ??? and it looked like a doily.

Designers create own versions of Canada's 150th birthday logo

Ottawa has started testing logos to mark Canada's 150th birthday in focus groups, so far to mixed reaction.

Ibraheem Youssef, a graphic designer, wasn't impressed by the designs floated by the federal government. He contacted some of his colleagues and challenged them to design something better.

Here's what they have come up with so far, as seen on The150Logo.ca. (Yahoo Canada News)
