Color us unimpressed: Montreal goes ballistic over new logo
It's been described as a, "patchwork of hot pink, tangerine, rhubarb, turquoise and green apple." Two years and $487,000 later the Montreal Metropolitan Community unveiled the region's new logo.
"I thought my neighbour's cat puked on my paper again this morning" was just one of the negative comments that citizens registered in the Gazette. The president of the design firm that created the logo was quoted as saying, ""deliberately chubby, very welcoming, like a comfy chair."
