Yes, that is hilarious. I’m glad I stopped by Jean Campbell’s blog and found this.
I’m adding this image to my collection of snail images from the Middle Ages:
An owl shows itself. With one of those flaming S Cal sunsets that I forgot about, I’m already in awe; then this quite large bird, powerful, full-feathered wings not a seagull, but whitish, comes swooping down and lands in a tree long enough for us (that is Nikki & me) to see the large dark eyes in the moon face. No mistaking it, an owl, not even a small one, either!
It very much resembled this owl, apparently in decline. Well, thanks for showing yourself, lovely owlie!
Apparently the graphic designer who added the red pagoda and thank you message is unknown. It was fun to read all about that box; I love folding, packaging and origami.
My husband purchased a pair of Patagonia shoes at REI, and we discovered a pleasant surprise in their packaging: the box is printed on the inside and is reversible. Either way, the box is very attractive, brown card printed in blue ink:
The above posted photos showing various views.
After googling around a little, here’s another post:
Surprisingly I didn’t find a direct link to Patagonia’s site. No PR, marketing? Or has this product been around so long that it’s no longer news? Patagonia is heavily invested in environmentalism:
Well, thanks, Patagonia. More companies need to be this forward-thinking.
I got inspired by my second look at the 2012 London Olympics brand:
It seems to say “don’t worry, be happy, include everyone and forget about terrorists lying in wait to blow us all up.”
The clever and eccentric logo developed for the London Olympic Games defies the stereotype that the British are stodgy and elitist. Under their reserved exterior lurks a mischief and exuberance. And yes, the Olympic Games could serve to change lives rather than express the domination of a few countries over others.
Thank you again, Rob Walker. The NYT magazine, as always my source for the best and brightest:
