As Glen Falls quietly organizes their first design conference, headlined by Milton Glaser, LA-based Quixo has decided to take another publicly embarrasing design matter into their own hands. The Donald T. Sterling Graphic Design Foundation hopes to persuade the real estate king and Clippers owner to stop the horrific full-page ads he runs in the LA Times:
This is not meant as an indictment of Mr. Sterling’s secretary, nephew, intern or whoever produces these ads. They’re doing the best they can without professional design software or training. But just placing one of these ads in the Times costs more than my annual salary. Donald T. Sterling Corporation can certainly afford to hire a professional to design them.
If you’ve got the chills already, sign the petition, or you could do what we plan to do to avoid ever encountering these ads: Not read the LA Times. Oh wait, we already do that.
