If you want to look sharp in a future ThermalAndAQuarterly quiz, take note of this bit of trivia: The TAAQ logo came to be in 1999 when a certain brilliant graphic designer named Sivan (then taking a sabbatical from O&M before going solo) did us a generous albeit inspired favour. We remember staring at the artwork that leapt at us from the proof and simply begged to be smeared all over the world. We dutifully did as told.
When eleven years added wrinkles and adipose to the logo, Sivan decided it was time for a little botox job — a tuck here and a nip there. He sent us Version 2.0:
We love it! In celebration, we have devised ways for you to flaunt it. Nope, not a tattoo — that’s Rajeev’s exclusive territory — but something more corporeal. It’s been ages since we let your bodies become advertising space — the last time was in 2003 (if you discount the “I’m with the band” crew tees issued by PG Santhosh in 2006).
Here’s what our new tees look like:
Thanks to Sivan for the new logo, and to Kamal and Abhi of Pigflower for the excellent production. A very limited number of tees will be on sale at our Alliance Francaise gig on June 20. Come and get them!
