Some serious play for the day. I'm told this is an old one, and it must be since I got it from a lawyer friend in London. But never mind. I laughed.
It also got me thinking. Cross-cultural communication can occur in many ingenious, creative, and humorous ways. And imagine what we can do once RFID tags become mainstream!
But seriously, can you imagine any other time in American history where people -- and I mean sensible business people -- felt as compelled to communicate their political position on silly things like clothing labels? I suppose you could call this a crass appeal to French consumers, but I think there is a broader issue here.
I was kind of narked when I found this. I wanted to start a company called ethi-labels (which was the same concept).
There was a student from Art Center collage who did this amazing project creating a line of clothing embroidered with the average salaries of workers for the parts of the garment on the clothes.
