Designers are vulnerable too!

I was talking to Slavedriver on MSN today and he's currently using this icon:

No doubt in support of this brand.

But before I found out it was the logo of a brand, I asked him, "Is that an obscene picture or is it a toilet bowl?"

No disrespect to the brand, but I really do think it looks like a graphic version of the top view of a toilet bowl.

Slavedriver of course said that it doesn't look like a toilet bowl and it is, in fact, a very cool logo. Goes to show that even when you're a designer, you can't help being biased by products you love and everything associated with it.

Endnote: It's the 'H' from Hollis Gear.
