Business-Inspired Design

We're all used to seeing corporate ads or logos used decoratively.  Maybe it started with the first rusty Coca-Cola sign brought indoors from off the barn, or maybe some ancient Roman college student swiped a tavern sign and hung it in his peristyled dorm, but it's pretty common.  Businesses can have great graphics.  There's one house I know with a classic red Mobile Gas Pegasus that I'd love to have.

But I admit to being startled in the sewing store yesterday when I saw pretty green and yellow fabric labeled "The John Deere Collection!"  Sure enough, little teeny tractors.

What better post to put up on the day I put ads on my site?  Ah!  Another corporate sell-out!
