Cropping Tip of the Day

When selecting a photo for a design project, be careful cropping. Otherwise, someone who sees your design later, in print, might be horrified. For example, let's say you go the Fazoli's in Zandale. You look up from your breadsticks to see a banner ad of what appears to be a woman in her forties hugging her grandmother (because everyone who eats three pounds of pasta in one sitting is going to outlive those who eat french fries, or so their fat-free marketing campaign leads us to believe). Only grandma's shirt is flesh-colored and the crop is very close, so what we have here is the simulation of nudy grandma. Very disconcerting. Careful, fellow designers. Avoid the nudy grandma.

I thought this one was really clever! VanderMolen should do stand-up comedy.
