In the fourth edition of Quipsologies we reported on I [heart] NC’s battles with the New York State Department of Economic Development. Mr. Stewart should have known better. Not even Jason, as in Friday the 13th-Jason, was able to machete his way through the department’s stronghold. [Found on the fabulous new blog PosterWire]

Amy, a Speak Up reader, writes “It is a sad day in the lives of artists/designers when we’re using our creative skills to compete for a basic human right: health insurance.” In a contest sponsored by Tylenol, Tokion is asking people to submit a zine. First prize winner gets one year of health insurance. And their zine reproduced.

The next time you're flowing in some fake text...

A brass plate on the door of the Playboy Mansion reads:

Si Non Oscillas, Noli Tintinnare

Which loosely translates as:

If You Don't Swing, Don't Ring

There's a new design poll at gdc.net about Vancouver 2010: Do you think Ilanaaq is an appropriate symbol for the 2010 games?

I'm not sure a lower-case "i" makes a very good symbol for anything, other than "info"(in the tourist-desk,helpful sense of the word), at this point. I look at that "i" and can only think of it as that, until I read the text next to it.

I think the Vancouver ID is nice. I can see some decent graphic language evolving from the mark. It should lead to some nice individual sport icons as well. The outstretched arms initially reminded me of Barcelona's logo, but it's really not that similar. I definitely appreciate that it has nothing to do with snowflakes and maple leafs.

What is it about big identity projects, that they always seem to get panned? Is it just sour grapes? Even when we know the difficulties involved, we still think, "I could have done better" ? I'm as guilty of it as the next, and it's bothering me. Anyone else?

The bigger the project the more likely it was design by committee and more likely the final product is, indeed, something we all could have done better. ;o)
