Who Knew That Wal-Mart's Logo Might Be Somewhat Scandalous?



(H/T to Bill Streeter for the find.) Art Chantry -- the one-time St. Louisan who designed the 2010 RFT Music Showcase poster -- posted the above photo on Facebook today, with the following note:

i study a lot of design history. i'm fascinated by this visual language we all speak -- but don't know we know it - and how sneaky it is. it always get the last word. graphic design (and the people who are it's masters - namely, us) are THAT good at this stuff.

so, it is through this perspective that i have discovered that there are only TWO (2) corporate identities/brands that ever made use of a SPHINCTER in their corporate identities - the butthole surfers and walmart.

draw your own conclusions....
