Ford Logo Has Sex, Social Unsiloed, Ads Sold, Lois Exhibits


- Here's another one of those logos with questionably sexual imagery. At least accoriding to the Adrants reader who sent it in.

- Alisa says we should drop the term "social media" arguing the entire internet is social and therefore there's no need to create yet another buzz word so that a silo can be erected around it.

- Yet another site on which creative ideas and concepts can be purchased. This time, it's in Japan.

- On Friday, you can catch ad legend George Lois' exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York

- The 49th Annual Clio Awards and Festival along with ihaveanidea, has announced the 12 finalists under 30 years old who will compete in the 2008 Clio Future Gold | Young Creatives Program.

The Ford V8 logo has been around since at least 1932. I'm thinking it is our modern dirty minds that see the sexual imagery, not the 1930's era graphic artists.

I always thought that logo was an obese man holding giant chopsticks.
