Designing Women

Ceci n'est pas une jorke. Nodoubt following in the footsteps of Gauguin (who went to Tahiti) the Village of Gurnee has acquired its new logo from a designer in Indonesia:
Rather than a strike a traditional contract with a design firm of consulting company, Gurnee used the crowdsourcing website to start what turned out to be worldwide competition to design the village's new logo.
How Gurnee's new logo came from Indonesia
The artwork was obtained via the services of a crowdsourcing website -- where a buyer posts graphic specifications on the Internet, and then purchases a design from out of a collection submitted by remote designers.

In related news, two employees of the Lake County Circuit Court Clerk were arrested this week for altering court documents:
Two sisters working in the Lake County circuit court clerk's office have been charged with altering court records for "personal benefit," prosecutors announced Friday.

Now, Photoshop may be a powerful imaging tool, but one software expert was candid with your LakeCountyEye: "Those two suspects should have just outsourced the job to Indonesia. They'd have saved themselves time and money. And on top of that, good luck with finding or extraditing someone in Indonesia."

That's all your LakeCountyEye has. Make like Vincent Van, and Gogh.
