Here's a nice big doodley flower for you. I figured you could always shrink it down if you need it smaller. I would love to see how you use this - just email me a small size of your layout, along with credits.

Whats in a name?

I was waiting on my man, OY, he was in a MUSIC store so I always know my bumm will turn into a block of numbness when he's there. Oh yes, he always profusely assures me he's "just in for a minute" but thats the same as me saying I'll only be in the thrift for 5 minutes, it just ain't going to happen.

So, I'm always looking around. Kinda people watching. Certainly a lot more to people watching in the city than in our little town. Not more interesting, but our town is a shrunken down version of the city, there's just more action going on all the time. So I'm sitting there and I spy this sign. Now, I've learned a lot of 'rules' with my graphics. It was not so long ago my husband coached me on what makes a good/bad logo. One of the golden rules is, your logo should reflect your product/business. This leads me to ask the obvious question. What does a barcode have to do with a haircut? Are they able to scan your head in nowadays? Charge by the weight of hair that is removed? Or is it Bar code, like a drinking establishment. I don't think I'd care to find out what that might look like. Or, do they just cut in a generic style - like president's choice, but barcode instead. They DO stand out from the rest of the predictable businesses next to them, like Sleep Country (Beds), and C-lovers (Fish and Chips) - maybe thats it. Do you have a silly sign to share with me?

I'm sorry I am not sure where this picture originated.
