2007 Haun Christmas Card

2007 Haun Christmas Card

In years past we’ve made videos for Christmas cards (2006, 2005, 2002) but this year we commissioned Boyz2Men, the top artist in Nalerigu to paint our card for us (more on him later).  Merry Christmas to all!

Comic Sans Flakes

Corn FlakesI gave you a look at the artistic genius that is my breakfast every morning.  Unfortunately Heidi gets the opposite. She eats some generic Ghanaian corn flakes every day and has to stare at a box featuring the Comic Sans font. No breakfast of champions would write the word “champion” in Comic Sans.

For those of you who aren’t font snobs and don’t understand the evils of Comic Sans, I invite you to visit www.bancomicsans.com to be educated. To quote that website:

“…widespread abuses of printed type threaten to erode the very foundations upon which centuries of typographic history are built. “

For those of you who would like to become font snobs, I invite you to check out the Helvetica documentary now out on DVD.

Super White Oats

Super White OatsTalk about the breakfast of champions! This is what I’ve been eating every morning. They may not taste all that great but staring at the genius artwork while I eat makes me forget about all that.

I’m a bit perplexed by the yellow burst in the bottom right stating “NEW Improved”. I didn’t know you could improve on raw oats all that much. Maybe the old version was just white and not super white.

I know one thing for sure – if David Brent saw these he would point a finger and say “Racial.”

I really like the composition of this image because it (loosely) uses the golden ratio. Read More
