Misadventures in graphic design



I drive by these billboards all the time in Upstate SC. I'm intrigued that "GUNS NOW" is in big, bloody letters, and while the other text is so tiny by comparison that the anti-gun sentiment gets a little buried, especially if you're just driving by and not really paying attention.

Re: Misadventures in graphic design

Heat, have you seen the Green Toyota billboard featuring a naked kid in a cowboy hat? The kid is maybe 2 years old. He is squatting and the picture is taken from the side, but you still see his butt. The kids is wearing only a cowboy hat. The caption says "Find your trusty steed." Creepy. I searched the web trying to find it (to post here!), but no dice.

Isn't this what the random pic thread is for?

No, these have a common theme, not random.

Re: Misadventures in graphic design

It's still all the same pics that have been in there dozens of times.

It's redundant.

That was my first thought. Anus burger at McD's? Fine, but at least get the grammar right.
