1982 Advertising Class Assignment: Flapjack Mix Label, by Charles Carreon

This great work of art was inspired by Don Kay, artist and teacher of artists extraordinaire, a tenured professor at the Southern Oregon University College of Art, whose most memorable comment to our advertising design class was, "we are moving to a vertical society, which means there will be a lot of people at lower income levels and a lot of people at higher income levels." Don's take-home lesson for the ad designer had nothing to do with politics -- the question was, were you going to sell your product to rich people or poor people? If you are selling to rich people, different rules apply, such as using more white space, creating an aura of elegance and entitlement, as if they are lucky you are willing to sell to them. Poor people are more susceptible to cheap-looking design, such as ad pages crowded with multitudinous offers, epitomized in the photography and electronics full-page ad genre, clamoring with small images and slashed prices. It would obviously be more fun and "artistic" to design for the wealthy, but then you'd hate yourself. I took these lessons and went off to law school, telling Don apologetically that I had decided to be a lawyer, and would not be going into the advertising field. Showing the lawyer inside the salesman, Don simply responded, "You could always change your mind."

Cold Metal

Cold Metal, by Iggy Pop
Copyright Notice: Iggy Pop, "Instinct," © 1988, A & M Records, Inc.

Uh
I played tag in the auto graveyard
I looked up at the radio tower
Rag tent by the railroad tracks
Concrete poured over steel bridge
Pondered my fate
While they built the interstate

I'm a product of America
From the morgue to the prisons
Cold metal, when I start my band
Cold metal, in my garbage can
Cold metal, gets in my blood
And my attitude

Yeah, a huh

Threw my hide in an automobile
Heard a song called "Drive the wheel"
Truckers, trailers, tractors caught me workin'

This is the song of my heritage
From the bad to the Buddha
Cold metal, that's what it be
Cold metal, from sea to sea
Cold metal, it's how we win
And also how we sin
How we sin, how we sin, how we sin, how we sin

Cold metal, in the afternoon
Sounds lovely like a Hendrix tune
Cold metal, it's the father of beat
The mother of the street
Cold metal, it rolls on by
Cold metal, gonna raise it high
Cold metal, it'll even fly
Rust buckets in the sky
Cold metal, got to be
Skeleton of the free
Cold metal, it's gotta be
Better save a tree
Save a tree, save a tree, save a tree, save a tree
Yeah
