Even Levar Burton is Crowdsourcing These Days

Reading Rainbow: awesome. Star Trek The Next Generation: sweet. Burton/Wolfe Entertainment’s logo design contest: meh.

Burton and production teammate Mark Wolfe formed a storytelling company and now they need a logo. Fucking Levar Burton needs a free logo? Fine, he just lost his job and maybe doesn’t have $2k to spend on a just-graduated freelancer. But c’mon. I kvetch, I kvetch. Learn more here.
