These are signs from a paint store near our apartment. Maybe I’m just a tree-hugging leftie, but I’m not sure I would have gone with this slogan or image for my signs in eco-friendly Vancouver:
â€œButbutbut it’s classic!â€
Reminds me of the classic Jean-Michel Jarre album cover from 1976:
Stunning! There must be some award for tone-deaf ads, because this needs a gold medal.
Given that the logo is over 100 years old I doubt that your PR disaster occurred to the creators. I also doubt that anyone who views the logo today believes that they want to actually cover the earth with paint.
