Flipper

I sometimes wonder whether it is EVER possible to do something good with a dolphin, graphic design wise. This looks like an aquatic version of a dog covering a fresh turd with dirt. What is it about the dolphin that makes them impervious to good design or sculpture?

    Why do you need good design or anything aesthetic when the way to a person’s purse is through their heart strings.
    Especially when so many are woefully out of tune with “good” anything.

    I blame that cuddly-wuddly dolphin Flipper. You can all hear him bleating can’t you?

    Well it’s a dolphin, a water creature innit. And it’s not in the water. It’s on the side of a bus. How can that ever look good? Like any dolphin out of water.

    That Lake Macquarie dolphin bears a striking resemblance to Belinda Neal.

  9. The custom dolphin one is also hideous. Has anyone seen a good dolphin graphic?

    There’s a brand of toilet paper with lots of lovely aquatic creatures frolicking all over it -dolphins included. How poetic that they end up -bleached and pulped- back in their native element.

  11. Oh Vic, yes I meant to take a shot of that toilet paper. We use Paul Murray’s columns for toilet paper at our place. Only problem is that your arse tends to fall asleep from boredom.
