a headline a day

Today’s Tidyman comes from the A HEADLINE A DAY blog. As the website explains: A HEADLINE A DAY is a blog dedicated to turning the days most interesting/sensational headline into a pictogram. Some pictograms involve a simple re-rendering of the image used in the newspaper, while others rely on a deeper understanding of the story in a bid to find the distinguishing elements which convey the meaning of the content in its most concise form.

The image above, with the Tidyman as the star of the show depicts: OLIVER’S BARMY: So, what on earth is a Tory minister doing dumping secret document in a park bin? — Front Cover, Daily Mirror. 14.10.11.

The Green Dot symbol’s use in the UK is controversial, but here it is used creatively by the packaging designers to provide a point of interest.
