They unveiled their new logo yesterday on their Facebook page. Hmmm, they may want to edit some of those comments.
1) It’s ANOTHER design contest. That’s right, the same state that held an open contest to design the licence plates (and failed miserably) held ANOTHER contest to design the logo for a fair that already has suffered from controversy and ridicule because people cannot see themselves going to Grand Island in the first place.
2) Look at the ferris wheel. There are NO SEATS in one-third of the ride. Imagine if this were put to practical use. You know how when you load the dryer with sheets and they all end up congregating on one side of the tumbler? You know the horrible noise it makes and you literally drop everything you have to rush to the dryer and stop it before it explodes and destroys your home? Yeah. Now imagine that same centrifugal force working on this ride with PEOPLE on it. That horrible sound would be punctuated by the screams of terror as loved ones are hurdled hundreds of feet into the air or whose mangled corpses are beating along the sides of the cars.
Did we not learn anything from the licence plate debacle? And the professional graphic designers were already up in arms to begin with.
