Trade Secret’s newest worst kept secret

Trade Secret Auto was awarded Audi Certification for the repair of aluminum frame and body for the A-8, R-8 and R-10. Repairing aluminum is like the difference between having your tonsils removed and brain surgery. It’s a whole different ball game.
Lidji Design Office prepared this announcement for Audi’s 5 state dealer network. An 18x24 poster hand delivered to Audi dealerships in an aluminum tube.

The Miami Heat logo: a hot mess!

Is it me or does the Miami Heat’s logo look like a flaming, amputated testicle going down the drain? Come to think of it, after last night’s NBA Final loss to the Dallas Mavericks, it’s the perfect logo for the Heat!

Thinking in parallel across the decades

This recent cover of the New Yorker brought to mind how ideas can transcend time and space. I’m just glad mine has the earliest date on it.

Oy vay, AIGA! Wake me when it’s over.

Those of you who know me, know that I am no fan of the AIGA. Their recent announcement to do a digital talk show called “A Day For Design” where designers talk to designers about design via twitter seemed to be the ultimate act of design self-mutilation. I did this poster to express my feelings about this organization.

Needless to say, I will not be attending.

Unrest in Egypt, again

Having parents from Egypt makes this subject a bit more meaningful for me. On the other hand, if it weren’t for corrupt Egyptian politicians during the early 50’s, I wouldn’t be an American today.
