Today’s design is a spoof image in honor of the new MacGruber movie in theaters today! I honestly can’t say I am a huge fan of MacGruber and I probably won’t see the movie until it comes out on DVD/BluRay/On demand. But I think the original Saturday Night Live bits are pretty funny. Mostly I like the intro scenes of the explosions with MacGruber standing in front of them.
MacGruber is a spoof of the hit TV show MacGyver. I have always enjoyed spoofs so today I am posting my cat, Q, in front of a MacGruberesque explosion and overlaying the logotype to spell MacQuber (I actually do call him MacQuber sometimes). It is a spoof of a spoof!
Here is a side note on the logotype since, after all, this is a design blog. In the Saturday Night Live skits the logo type is set with a font called Copperplate and modified a bit. They have modified the logotype a bit for the motion picture using a font that looks to me like Banker Gothic. I chose to use Copperplate for the MacQuber logotype since I am partial to Saturday Night Live’s skits.
See you all tomorrow.
