An Update On That Obama Logo
Posted at 09:56 PM


WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THAT OBAMA LOGO?: We’ve got the answer: He went into retirement. And here’s the story: “The Logo: A Short Film” by the co-creator of the logo, Mr. Steve Juras. An American hero, if you ask us.

That logo will forever be one of my favorites, so get with it and read a first-hand account from the co-creator himself. Excellent stuff. Opportunity of a lifetime.

Be sure to dig around the Swiderski Institute for more greatness. Keep yer eye on this guy. One of Chicago’s finest.

ABSOLUTE REQUIRED VIEWING: “Powerhouse: The Photographs of Darris Lee Harris.”

Don’t pass this one up. Beautiful photography of old machinery. Doesn’t get much better, really.

This is the one that the generous Mr. Cruz sent me this morning, which brought all production to a screeching standstill.

FROM MY OLDER BROTHER STYK, UP IN WASHINGTON STATE: Here’s a first. A link to JCrew, of all site. But, they made a good-lookin’ leather messenger bag, and man, it’s steep in price but looks pretty damn good.

SOMETHING WE’VE BEEN LISTENING TO, OVER AND OVER: Mark Kozelek’s latest, The Finally LP. Soothing stuff.

Hey Aaron,

Check these things out!! Just flipping thru the years. I love the first Carter/Mondale green job in the 1976 section. Lots of turds but a couple of real keepers in there
