Donald Sterling Ropes Marilyn Monroe Into His Assault on Good Design
Donald Sterling, what have you done?
As seen in this week's Los Angeles Times. We're used to the oversized, blurry, poorly cropped photos of Sterling in his obnoxious and horribly designed ads. So when "Marilyn" took the place of Sterling in this ad, it was rather jarring. I have no idea what's going on here.
Not familiar with Sterling's assault on good design? Here's a classic:
