"How is it possible that the Department of the Family of Puerto Rico, adopt an official logo in blue baby forgetting agency representing over 50% of the port-rriqueña?" (Hon. M. Santiago, 2009)
Sen. Santiago MARIITA research filed a resolution instructing the Judiciary Committee and the Committee on Social Welfare research on the colors of the logo of the Department of the Family. (Click here for the news of the New Day)
Certainly the messages, symbols, communication is achieved through the images, are serious issues ... But ... The senator argues that advertising agencies have experts who manage to "hide messages" replacing "the crude and practice repudiated vote buying with the refined formula to penetrate the unconscious of the voter ". One would think that such an allegation is preamble to, I know I ... electoral reform? To control the use of corporate donations to campaigns using partisan? No. The senator argues that at a minimum, include a boy blue in the emblem, and that ideally redesign the logo - because the puzzles are broken, and broken families do not want, right?
After a moment of Shocked and flicker, some simple questions minced eyes this suggests:
- What legislator census refers when he speaks of that 50% of children in Puerto Rico blues? I imagine that children whose parents profess a political ideology statesman. Children do not vote. They should not have free will to vote (or not vote) for whom they please when .. vote to?
- What happened to that brilliant subliminal manipulation strategy that Senator complaint in the last election? As far as I know, the red faded, green became almost invisible, and orange ... well, not irrelevant orange, and does not appear in the drawing. Maybe that's why he did not win.
- The controversial colors are unfortunately primary colors. How to solve the problem this poses for the graphic art in transition years Rican government and legislative creativity? Logos? Grays, perhaps? (Thought to suggest "violet" but I dare - free god that blue and red are mixed, or more reddish violet or bluish leaves of the bill!)
- If the percentage of "blue babies" is the criterion for inclusion of that color, should not be so for the size of children's logo? Maybe the figures occupy space that should be proportional to the outcome of the election? A thicker blue child (or higher) than the other two? But then, what do we do with the greens?
- If the emblem is, according to the senator, "a clear and strong political message ..." then someone explain to me, what the child sector accounts yellow?
In short. Perhaps the senator who now represents ALL the people of the region of Humacao (which includes Yabucoa, Naguabo, Patillas, Humacao, Maunabo, Juncos, San Lorenzo, Gurabo, Caguas, Las Piedras and Aguas Buenas) think that taking this type of "controversy" is as best serve their constituents.
