In today’s Round-Up, we are once again discussing the art of the selfie. We will also look at the evolution and history of holiday coffee cups as well as the perfect winter work hat for being outdoors all winter long.
What a weird time it is to be alive.
Clothing brands like Hugo Boss are now offering apparel with the logos and other typography designs written backwards so that they will appear correct in posted mirror selfies. You read that right. In real life (IRL as the kids say) the taglines and logos are backwards so that they can be legible online.
Remember back to this time 4 years ago. It was 2015; Obama was President, and Starbucks unwillingly waged a War on Christmas by designing a simple disposable cup for the season. After nearly 20 years of holiday cups, the internet was outraged that Starbucks chose a plain red option to complement the green logo, despite all the advice that simplicity is key in design elements (see below.)
See all the holiday cups before and after that overinflated incident in the article.
- Red is here to stay.
- Simplicity is key.
- Designs are better than no designs.
