Miss-South-Carolina-Defends-Answer.jpg

Who knew design had such a dark side? Some of our 2007 news was downright scary.

Design was dangerous. An innocent English logo was found to have serious medical side effects. Another made New Yorkers queasy. Guerilla marketing for a cartoon and a student art project were declared national threats. A building attempted to trap people inside with dripping water and/or shards of ice placed strategically around the exits.

Design was controversial. It made people happy, angry, addicted, and fat. It turned Tom Wolfe and a small town in upstate New York against us.

And worst of all, the most inarticulate person in the history of the internet was reported to be a graphic designer.

UnBeige is counting down our biggest stories of 2007, all day, right here.
