- Hillary Clinton announced her presidential campaign Sunday, along with a campaign logo that is drawing criticism.
- Critics on Twitter pointed out the logo—a blue H with a red arrow pointing to the right—has a resemblance to other images like the FedEx logo and nautical themes.
- Others have criticized the logo for being too simplistic—with one user claiming his toddler invented the logo with blocks.

No campaign garners nearly as much criticism as a U.S. presidential campaign. The team that created the image likely anticipated much of the criticism it inspired, as logo controversy is nothing new to marketing professionals.
