Today I refer you to my latest article on Chicagosphere. This week, an out-of-state “community branding” consultant stood up in front of the Oak Park, Illinois, village board and proposed a new visitors bureau logo for the upscale, west-suburban town. Trouble is, for a lot of folks, at first glance–and second, and third–the new logo looks a lot like…a phallus. It’s a “you can’t make this stuff up” controversy that caught fire in the Oak Park Twitterverse. Read all about it on Chicagosphere today, in The Oak Park Penis: Does the Village’s New Logo Look Like a Phallus?
And don’t say I didn’t warn you.
