Rejoice, my fellow Graphic Designers!

Ever since Tropicana rebranded their packaging, there’s been almost nothing but negativity towards the decision.

I remember the first time I saw it at the local Shaw’s (which I can’t bring myself to call Star Market), I thought it was horrendous. It reminded me of those 3-dimensional models of the planet where there was a quadrant cut out and you could see all the layers beneath the crust. I don’t need my orange juice to remind me of lava, it’s acidic enough as is.

Anyway, here’s a link to the article that made my day.

And here’s a picture of an ad we have on BU campus, that hopefully will be gone soon!

    The last few comments imply that very loedpsid co-authorships arise with advisors taking credit they shouldn’t. There are other circumstances that seem more common where the contributions can be very loedpsid. * Advisor gives problem to student who makes essentially no progress after some extended time – nothing more than the trivial ideas that the advisor mentioned the first day when introducing the problem. Student or advisor brings in postdoc who has the key idea that solves the basic question and presents it in a joint meeting. In that meeting advisor makes a few useful observations that extend the postdoc’s work. All three become authors. Student writes first draft of paper. Postdoc completely rewrites. Student gives presentation.* Several postdocs/interns are sitting around in a room playing around with a problem. Each is blurting out ideas at various times. One of them ends up making only minor comments that have nothing to do with either shooting down ideas or coming up with new ones. All become co-authors.
