every once in awhile, graphic designers become famous. usually, it's for something bad that they have done. he he.
last year, it was the now infamous 'gap' logo that lasted about 3 days, when an outrage from the good public on facebook confirmed what we all knew, that it was UGLY.
yesterday, it was the starbucks in-house designers who made the news, when starbucks decided to go 'nike' on us, and delete the words, leaving only the stylized 'siren' as their brand. from what i can perceive, they did not change a single other element.
yikes. 783 news stories on this since yesterday!!! seriously, people, it's graphic design, not world hunger! i actually kind of think i would know where that cup came from without the words, but apparently not every one agrees!
what do you think?
ps. this was the funniest graphic that i saw yesterday. ha! very good thinking!
