UNICEF ad display issue January 6, 2005 11:38 AM   Subscribe

The UNICEF ad on (not logged in) MeFi is a little funky. I think they were expecting a white background. As it is, the child's face and the "relief" text to the left of it are obscured. Not a big deal, just thought I'd mention it. So this isn't just a complaint, I'm happy to copy/modify/send it somewhere, but I don't know to whom that'd go.

I mean, yeah, it'd go to Matt, I know. But is that the thing to do? Does anybody care?

Tell the guy Henry Copeland at blogads.com - it's his ads.

Yeah it caught my eye, might that be the point?

probably a mistake made by the designer in an effort to get the file size as small as possible, not realizing that not all blogs have white backgrounds.

Transparents pixels take up just as much space.

More likely the designer doesn't know they have transparency turned on in their software...

Dear god, just saw it for the first time. She looks like she's got some REALLY nasty disease! Makes me want to send money to some organization (although probably not UNICEF for a variety of reasons).
