phone home


i don't think there's a revise here, but if anyone could explain to me the significance of the object in the picture i would be a happy camper. i always thought it looks like a telephone pole. kudos for not using a rhombus.

The American Lung Association was originally founded to fight tuberculosis.
The symbol is the double bar cross, the Cross of Lorraine during the Middle Ages Crusades. An analogy for the crusade against lung disease.
In alchemy, the cross represents a crucible, a place in which opposites are dissolved and combined, and matter transformed.

thanks. i should have googled it. i still like thinking it's a telephone pole. but with a little typography update i think it's fresh. it has some weird letterforms.

what does the cocktail toothpick symbolize on the American Cancer Society logo?

martinis. lame and low on liquor content. not enough to get your drunk, and far from enough to make you just happy.
