Trust us, we know what we are doing.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who have seen the PAP banner logo affixed upside down, have been assured that the situation has been fixed.

A PAP grassroots organiser, Pai Mah Pi, said: “After listening to the many feedback from Singaporeans, we have taken into account all the different input and come up with a solution to rectify the problem.”

“We know we are unable to satisfy everyone all the time, but we have successfully turned the lamp post upside down so that now the PAP banner logo is the right side up.”

“This is not the easiest thing to do, but once we have made the decision, we have to follow through to show that we are serious about doing what we say.”

“We sincerely hope those who were our biggest critics who pointed out the error and opposed us, can now see the error of their ways as their judgement of the situation was not correct to begin with as there are more than one way to solve a problem.”

“We can agree to disagree, voice your opinions and dissent if you must, but the PAP will come up with the best solutions to help Singaporeans and do things that are difficult and not to the liking of everyone.”

“And through this instance, we have shown we have what it takes to bring the country forward as we are a party of ideas and one that is ready to make difficult decisions on behalf of Singaporeans, that can at times be difficult for others to accept.”

“We hope you can trust us by giving us your vote, give us the mandate to rule, tweak your perspective to see things from our point-of-view and to work with the PAP to do the impossible.”

At press time, the PAP said it will have no choice but to turn more lamp posts upside down if it means doing so will be for the benefit of Singaporeans.

This is the real OMGtel logo

This is the real OMGtel logo

Consistel subsidiary, OMGTel, has recently rolled out a logo pushing the frontiers of technology and graphic design.

Comprising of the letters “O”, “M” and “G” in multicoloured Impact font, placed in front of a gradient-filled rhombus, this lively logo has taken the Internet by storm.

“Ask Jeeves informed me that this style of graphic design is the latest ‘hip’ and ‘fly’ thing,” said designer Lao Gu Dong.

“Its multiple gradients really push the frontiers of graphic technology. To tell you the truth, my computer almost overheated when I had to switch from Microsoft Word to Microsoft Paint,” he said.

When questioned about his font choice, Lao said: “I was taken aback when I was entrusted with the responsibility of designing the logo for what might be Singapore’s fourth telco. I scrolled through the list of Word 98 fonts to find one with an impact. You can imagine my surprise when I found one which was literally called Impact.”

OMGTel spokesperson, Jin Oh Biang, said: “I’m glad that Lao came through at this critical moment. It must have been incredibly difficult to visualise such a futuristic and stylish logo. The various colours of the gradients represent our commitment to landlines, pagers, as well as that new technology, cellular phones.”

“The logo has definitely furthered our brand recognition and popularity locally. After the launch, one of the most common reactions to our logo has simply been ‘OMG’.”

 

OMG indeed:

8 brands that failed to pay tribute to Lee Kuan Yew

8 brands that failed to pay tribute to Lee Kuan Yew

Tags: ,


They were caught not changing their profile pictures to black and white during seven-day mourning.

Many Singaporeans and even international brands paid tribute to Lee Kuan Yew during the seven-day period of mourning starting March 23, 2015, by changing their social media display picture to black and white as a mark of respect, for example:

Some brands, such as Old Chang Kee, for example, were late on the scene by three days as they changed their profile picture only on March 26, 2015, but better late than never.

However, there were many other brands that did not bother to change their logos to black and white as they didn’t think it was important to perform a gesture as simple as changing their logo colour for Lee Kuan Yew, while continuing to operate their business in Lee Kuan Yew’s Singapore.

And we caught them red-handed.

 

Here is a list of them:

1. Sakae Sushi

Singaporeans First Party should hire a lawyer. To sue their designer.

Wall’s ice cream has a strong case to make in what appears to be a less-than-subtle copyright infringement of their logo.

This after the ice cream brand’s logo appears to have been plagiarised by Singapore’s newest political party, Singaporeans First Party.

Mei Chuang Yi, a intellectual property lawyer, said: “Wah lau eh, like that cannot lah.”

However, this is not the first time political outfits have tried to pass off corporate logos as their own.

Previously, citizen website, The Online Citizen, borrowed their logo from rubbish chute maintenance corporation Veolia Environmental Services’ logo, which bears more than just a passing family resemblance to the original.
