The entrance to Tomorrow Land! Hurray!!

Hopefully the bunny doesn't conjure up too many images and feelings form your childhood.

Up to the 3:30 minute mark this guy is dead on! It did strike me that the "W" actually was great for G.W. 43. Too bad the execution sucked -- royally! Cue sad trombone track: *Wah-Wah-Wah-Waaaah*.

Whittle, the Democrat logo can't even touch the Republican logo. The Republican logo (pun intended)kicks the Dems ass! The elephant, I would argue, is solid, clean, and professional. It's a good mark and a lot can be done with a mark like that.

Past the 6:00 mark, he goes off into more branding blah blah blah and shows off what he calls a "master-piece". Gag me! It's a far cry, IMO. The copy "Why so Socialist" is clever, but once again(like all conservative design I've ever seen) fails(miserably) in execution.

See how Liberals create engaging, memorable design here.

t 'n' i

Recently a co-worker was wondering when I would look over the design of an project we were sending out. Made me wonder, "What’s the design equivalent to 'crossing t’s and dotting i’s'"?

Cholesterol Logo

I have high Cholesterol(which you probably wouldn't guess by looking at me). It's sad. However, my dear wife has been poring over the world wide web in search of more health-conscious recipes. This logo was on one of the pages she left open. Pretty slick whoever did it. Love the way the stress (left curve) of the "C" looks like the walls of a blood vessel closing up. It's simple. It's effective. Love it.
