Stay on Target- Stay on Target-

Mother Nature was right on TARGET as a tornado passed trough Colonial Heights, VA today.

See what happens when you use a bulls eye as your logo? It just invites trouble.

The only business that were damaged so badly by the tornado that they needed to close are the two who's signs were not damaged.
OH THE HUMANITY! What if my barn needs to go to a wedding? Where can I go to ride the Tilt-A-Sneaker now?

Other business in the vicinity were also slightly damaged by the tornado, except for Wal-Mart. Which just proves the theory that Jesus Saves... everyday at Wal-Mart.

It's not just the floors that are dirty.

My wife tells me that advertising is deliberate, she would know she is a designer in that industry. Advertisers seek to spark your mind, and if your mind is sparked you continue to think about their product even when it is no longer in front of you.

It works here are two examples of recent finds that I just can't forget.

(Left) McDonald's rich in double entendre. On the sticker and the box.

(Right) Located near the entrance to Fort Lee, this area of E. Washington is colorfully referred to as Petersburg's Red Light District. Here I thought only "Hooters" had a full rack special. I also love the position of this ad just below the "Family BBQ." We have the phone company to thank for that layout.
