Summer Bruise makes me feel hurt.

I may or may not be starting a band with someone doing metal versions of Seals and Crofts hits. Maybe... Maybe not.

hipster marketing

so, i don't like throwing around the term "hipster" because i've never really been supplied with a good definition of it. is it skinny jeans? stretched out ear lobes? hoodies? beards and thick rimmed glasses? is it all about fashion? or does it go deeper than that?
when I saw this dude pop up in the "people who enjoy drinking from a mason jar - sippy cup" slide show, i knew i was getting closer to understanding the term. Note: if you keep watching images from this slideshow, you'll see a biker sitting on his hawg, drinking out of a straw that's been put through the opening of a cuppow thing. seriously.

Yet another branding...

well, here's another logo that's taken the chunky simple font overhaul. looks way more like a fast food joint now.

updated logos.

So there's several re-branding campaigns out there as of late. I didn't really think much of it until the ebay one. I would love to see the design charges for each of these jobs. I can only imagine what kind of b.s. is involved in talking a corporation into accepting a "new and improved" version of their logo via helvetica or arial font. I'm all about simplification generally. A "less is more" kinda thing, but these choices all seem generic. No sense of history or story or concept behind the decisions. Just simplification for the sake of simplification.
