Your Thoughts on Corporate Art Styles

Are we moomin, or are we dancer?
It's just insult added to injury. I have strong opinions on how corporations like Google conduct business but that's a whole different tangent.

Personally, my life is way too hard to leave any remaining energy to get bothered about 'art' in google's advertising.

Are you enjoying the national gallery collection I posted?

Maybe if someone makes them into furries it'll be cool.


Give the people what they want.

I suspect the simplicity and exaggerated forms are because corporations want their logos to be clearly visible when viewed on a tablet or mobile phone screen.

I don't have any artistic opinions on this content; it's not meant to be 'art' afterall. It surprises me that there are people who are upset about it; of all the evils tech companies are up to, any artistic subtext to their logos isn't really high on my list of concerns.

While I'll agree you that the art styles like these are not a crucial subject that people should be aware of, threads like this aren't a rare occurrence.

I've made threads dedicated to specific birds, game threads, threads based off jokes, and pretty much whatever I feel would keep people entertained for a few hours.

Rest assured, the art style Google/Facebook is using is hardly having an impact on my life, however, if I made a thread discussing the controversial things big business are doing, I would predict it wouldn't go too well.:p

I also appreciate the links you gave. I would also prefer the subject switch to admiring other forms of art at this point, all things considered

I browse it when I have time. Haven't seen Monet in there yet but might come up, or it might not be in their gallery

They hold 18 paintings by Monet.

What I don't really get about a lot of angry art criticism anyway is that this is the period in time where the largest and most varied quantities of art are being produced,
and a huge amount of historical stock has been digitised and is freely available.

People could be browsing these online libraries of paintings they say they would enjoy, and that they feel angry are not being celebrated.

Instead there is a debate about whether facebook's advertising is too abstracted.

Here is an online link to the digitised painting collections of the UK's National Gallery:

You can look at high-resolution scans of Diego Valesquez or John Constable's work for free.
Thanks for the links. I do like Monet.

It could be worse, though: just think if all the art in advertising was in the 'Wiki How' style:

Not too bad idea, at least then every advertisement would make me laugh! Unlike the current Attack Of Deformed Homunculi, which gives me a feeling I'd call esthetic creeps instead.

I hate what some companies have done to their existing mascots (like Kellogg's revamping their Toucan Sam cereal mascot). There's a grocery store chain called Kroger that has a current ad campaign that uses these freakish, weird looking people in all the commercials and banners at the store, and I HATE them. They kind of remind me of creepy dolls. I'm not sure what kind of focus groups the companies are having to make them think that these are great ideas. There are a lot of things corporations do these days that don't make much sense to me.

Now I feel like I need to open a gallery called 'the deformed homunculi'
