Shocking information!

“Nike’s “SWOOSH logo is a graphic design created by Caroline Davidson in 1971,” says “It represents the wing of the Greek Goddess Nike. Caroline Davidson was a student at Portland State University in advertising. She met Phil Knight [current chief executive officer, president, and chairman of Nike] while he was teaching accounting classes and she started doing some freelance work for his company. Phil Knight asked Caroline to design a logo that could be placed on the side of a shoe. She handed him the SWOOSH, he handed her $35.” Does that qualify as slave labour?”

    it kinda sounds like she just thoughtlessly made a mark on a piece of paper the second he asked her. if we’re talking hourly rate, i’d say $35 is fair.

    but if i were here, i’d be PISSED.
