Tim and the Tin Titan


Quote of the day

We are just an advanced breed of monkeys
on a minor planet of a very average star.
But we can understand the Universe.
That makes us something very special.

Stephen Hawking

Bad Bonhomme!

The Carnaval de Quebec are having an auction as a fundraiser:

Look familiar?

They use the same "Up and Down" layout, similar fonts (notice how close the "a" is) and just shifted the tints of the colors a bit. It's almost like XPUB, the marketing company that did the site, wanted to copy the eBay logo but modify it just enough so they don't get sued for trademark infringement. That's called lazy design. Oddly, on their list of realizations, the auction site is not listed, only the online store. Could it be that they are ashamed of such a blatant rip-off?
