no one noticed, right? it's just elle. and who is times magazine, anyway? like anyone reads that thing? and from the fall edition (2007, helloooo, that was long time agooo?!) until now who remembers anything?
or - who religiously reads elle has no idea what T magazine is.

yes, true, there is maybe not a large crossover of elle & T's audience. but people notice, *I* noticed. and the larger issue, to me, is that there is something that is just inherently lazy and sort of half-assy to me about doing things like this, especially if you are supposed to be a respected art director of a certain stature. there are innovators and there are imitators and there is something in-between and there is something to be said for all of those positions. HOWEVER it is not an excuse to be like, oh who reads it anyway. i feel like you should have more pride in your work than to just have no other way to solve a problem than to flat out copy. just my opinion!
