Vancouver intersections as envisioned by local graphic designers. The Broadway and Granville poster’s probably my favourite, but this one should make sense even to those who have never seen the city.

A Creative Catharsis

In which members of Ireland’s creative community have created posters featuring the worst feedback they’ve ever received from clients in support of the Temple Street Children’s Hospital. Some examples:

  • "You’re portraying the Vikings in a negative light"
  • "Irish people can’t read italics"
  • "We feel that red just isn’t right for Christmas"
  • "Lo-res?? But I don’t understand…if you can’t make it any bigger, how are you able to enlarge it on the screen?"

And my (and likely everyone’s) favourite:

  • "I have printed it out, but the animated GIF is not moving?"

Click through. They’re great.

Newseum | Today’s Front Pages | The Birmingham News

Love this front page – no headline per se, just a strong graphic representation of Obama’s re-election.

Click through. It’s a great rant, presented beautifully.

First the Marlins, now the Jays? Uni Watch has confirmed that the Blue Jays are taking it back to the old school (sort of) with a new logo for the 2012 season. Can’t wait to see the uni’s.

my transformation from Twins fandom to Blue Jays fandom gets even closer to completion

I realize everyone’s freaking out about how awesome this logo is, but it really looks like a) someone slapped a maple leaf on the old Jays logo in PhotoShop or b) the Jay is wearing a large maple leaf earring. SORRY IT’S WHAT I SEE.

I believe you mean “restored the maple leaf to its rightful place”. Here’s the logo the Jays used until 1996:

What briefs looked like before y-fronts were invented?

Things like that are why boxers have never gone out of style.

Reblogging for future sober commentary

Original here.

Would it be petty to suggest alternate slogans for the items on the right? I’m thinking:

  • "CUTS AREN’T HIRING";
  • "IT’S NOT RIGHT OR LEFT[.] IT’S RIGHT OR SANE"; and
  • "ANNOY A CONSERVATIVE[.] WORK HARD[,] DEMAND A FAIR WAGE"

If name-calling works among conservative voters, why not play along?
