  1. David,

    Brilliant spoof! Thanks for sharing – made for a great laugh this morning. I’ve had many clients who would love to buy the ‘whitespace eliminator’ spray.


  2. David,

    I came across “Make My Logo Bigger Cream” a while back and had to pull out the tissue box. I laughed so hard I cried. It’s just as funny the second (third, fourth…) time. Glad you posted about it!



  3. Great find. I’ve had this happen to me a few times. It’s so annoying!

    On an unrelated note, those diagonal lines you’ve got as a background on the comments (Like on Peter Sullivan’s comment for example) are really distracting. You can’t read the comment properly. Just a thought.

  4. Ran into this a while ago, was having a really good laugh because was busy deisgning a logo at the time and the clients filled out all the criteria of this spoof add.

  5. Glad you all enjoyed the clip. :)


    Thanks for the pointer on the comment box styling. I’d not actually considered the diagonal lines to be a distraction, but now you mention it, I think a change is in order.

  6. A friend sent this to me not too long ago… I laughed so hard I cried. The best part: I had just finished a logo design project with a client who was the epitome of Make My Logo Bigger.

    Thanks for the laugh!

  7. Hilarious!!!! I just had a client ask for a bigger logo AND less white space. This cracked me up!

  8. Let’s just hope that those products will never make it to the market :-) Most clients already tend to do the unimaginable to ruin a design let alone you give them the tools in hand !! I can’t imagine the whitespace eliminator !!! LOLL.

    Regarding viral marketing, one must surely mention the launch of the Year Zero album by Nine Inch Nails and a bit way back in time, the promo to Artificial Intelligence movie. Both I think are excellent examples of the power of viral marketing. Definitely the way forward to spreading your message !

  9. I hope this never happens. Too many of my clients would jump at the change to make everything bigger. I already have problems keeping a little whitespace in the design. It was hilarious though, in a sad depressing kind of way!
