Not Knowing Whether To Laugh Or Cry

Randy Ludacer of the packaging blog box vox just posted a skit about logo design from SCTV. It’s funny, but hits a little bit too close to home.

There aren’t too many pop culture
references to graphic design (or the companies that sell it). This TV
commercial skit with Rick Moranis from SCTV is one of the few that I can recall. I like that it has two punch-lines. First the shoe—then the terrible logo. Originally
aired in 1981, it seems even more pertinent today with online sites
offering low budget “stock” logos and “logo templates,” etc.
