A Little Redundant...

It's a gun!...made of other guns.

I saw a large ad for this movie the last time I went to the theater, and I must admit, it did catch my eye. It is very visually striking...but a little boring, c'mon a gun, made of other guns?? Couldn't they think of something more creative? I wonder how many guns are in the film?

Happy Valentines Day everyone! I hope you are all having a fun day! My husband and I celebrated on Sunday, a day early. He took me to see The King's Speech (great movie, by the way), out to dinner and to Cold Stone (yum!). I had a great early Vday. Love to you all!!!

That's Using Your Head!

This is a great example of an eye-catching advertisement. The minimal type with plenty of white space makes it easy to read (and the play on words is really cute). I also like how they overlaid the x-ray of the skull over the Spartan logo, genius!

I was recently back in Michigan and I saw a well designed billboard advertising the location of Michigan State University's new medical education and research center. This is the best use of a collegiate logo that I have seen in a long time...good job State! Read more about it here.
