The Loius Vuitton logo is just so fitting.  :sarcasm:

We can probably skip the sarcasm emoticon in this thread and just assume for all.

These are really fun versions of brand logos. Comic Sans has never been a good typography for logos. (The pixelated ones are more fun.) Good typography is invisible typography still.

Fbomb, Just another uncool B4 member. One of the Glorious Assholes of prepress.

Speed doesn't kill, rapidly becoming stationary is the problem

Slavery still exists, they just changed the name to prepress.

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

My son has these McSweeney books everywhere. They are F'n mind-boggling on how they are put together. One is a double spine nightmare, I can't figure out some of the others.
