Last week I was in Sam's Club, and I was looking at their Member's Mark Milk. Something was bothering me about the label. It took me a while to notice what it was. The cow on the label has no udder. Hello. Earth to graphic designers, cows without udders typically become hamburgers. Cows with udders produce milk (given the right circumstances, and then stand back). What does it say about the milk they're selling when the cows have no udders. No sure I'd want to drink it.
Conversely, there's this cartoon called Back at the Barnyard. One of the main characters, Otis, a boy cow (we call 'em bulls where I come from), has an udder. Um. And they say gay marriage will confuse the kids.
Now, since I normally criticize those in my profession, let me give a shout out to someone doing it right. Those wonderful people over at TCM have some very good visual designers working for them. I love their cut scenes, the monthly focus blurbs, and just in general how the non-movie visual of the station. It's fabulous.
