Is this the same designer as the one who created the new American Cancer Society logo? Shouldn't they have at least considered a rhombus? That's all I'm saying...

methinks they are going for a warmer, fuzzier image that only a bad color scheme and stretched type can achieve. i feel cheerful just looking at it.

have you noticed they got rid of the rainbow color scheme? are they worried we might associate the organization with gay rights? come on...i bet this was the reason for the new design. am i wrong? any thoughts?

design officer said...

i bet that rainbow was a bit of a tough one to reproduce on things with really low image quality. it's funny because i remember only seeing it in a solid color or black, i had never seen the rainbow version before i did a little research. also the lil kid got all grown up in the new hand/dove (that's what it looks like to me).

...and couldn't you read the tag line in a nihilistic way?
