Today, the Chicago Cubs shared more images of their proposed changes to Wrigley Field. One image is particularly misleading. A somewhat detailed look can be found at the Chicago Tribune along with a caption (to the second image above) explaining where actual advertisements will be placed (Full caption pasted in comments below). To the Cubs’ […]
image courtesy of New York Magazine via Yahoo Word on the street is that Jack Lew is going to be appointed the Sec. of Treasury. What’s that matter for a blog about art, design, technology and other chicago hot dog randomness? Lew’s signature. It is simply pure awesomeness.
I love patriotism on stamps. I’d like to see a stronger return to patriotic elements on our stamps. The whole cultural recognition on stamps (Simpsons stamps, movie actor stamps, etc.) has become pretty silly and worn out.

“Pantone 7410 is so stupid”. Seriously though. Look at Pantone 7410. It is hideous. Why in the world is it nestled between Pantone 7409 and 7411?
“Your picas are stupid.”
Hmph. Can’t find much anything on Google for stupid graphic design quotes. Looks like I’m gonna have to take care of that market.
The narrative on the box design for Playmobil set 5138: Cast Away on Palm Island is intriguing. I want to know more about this story. This man seems to have been on this incredibly small island for some time. His clothes are tattered. He sports a deep tan. He’s made the most of his existence. […]
