Social media users have poured scorn on the Tourism and Culture Ministry's Visit Malaysia Year 2020 logo, saying it is both humiliating and amateurish. – The Malaysian Insight pic, January 27, 2018.

MALAYSIANS have panned the new Visit Malaysia Year 2020 (VMY2020) logo as mediocre and in poor taste.

The logo was launched by Tourism and Culture Minister Nazri Aziz at the Asean Tourism Forum (ATF) 2018 in Chiang Mai, Thailand yesterday.

    • Wait till one visits the government hospitals or clinics. You will be given substandard and low quality generic medicine (mainly rejects from India) which make one SICKER than before.

  • In my opinion, the logo is a great insult to overseas tourists portraying them as orangutans and turtles. Many Malaysians of Chinese origins are already referring to whites as 'ang mo kao' in the Hokkien dialect. This poster just adds weight to the popular coined word.

  • I can tell you that this is not the designer's fault. As a person who has done projects for the government, this is just the result of government's intervention on a creative level. they cant leave the designers alone, there is most likely little creative freedom on their parts in designing the logo.
