Obama vs. change…
I recently bought a new car, and because of this, I get a lot of mail. Lots of companies want my opinion on 30,000 different aspects of the car, as if my opinion was actually worth something. Sadly, I just don’t have enough time to give to these companies. One of them was nice enough to include a fresh dollar bill in the envelope, which was enough for me to actually look at all 40 pages of questions it had before I trashed it.
Anyway, one company sent me some information on how Volkswagon, I got a GTI, is supporting their movement to reduce carbon emissions. They are called Carbon Fund. Very interesting stuff. But what was more interesting was their logo, which looks a lot like the logo of a certain presidential candidate. I assume, since Carbon Fund as been around since ’03, that their logo came first. Here they are, in all their glory:
I am not a designer, but I do work with designers, and I know that they get inspiration from various places. Both of these are aiming at an awakening, to show that something is on the rise, but its not going to happen with just logos and good intentions.
Check out their websites to learn more, Barak Obama and Carbon Fund.
