unfortunately the reality is that the question mark did not evolve in this fashion (although it is a very old idea) it was initially more of a lightning strike it is a lovely graphic though

i like the first pepsi logo, and the first ford one best.  why does everything have to look like it could go into outer space now?


i'm glad summer's almost here.  that means more pinstriping.
