Two "M"s. 3-D.

Picked up a Mike McFadden button at this year's Minnesota State Fair. McFadden is trying to unseat U.S. Senator Al Franken. I think it's a nice enough design. Following on the Barack Obama lead of using a logo for political candidates. The McFadden logo even makes use of the three stripes from the Obama logo.

But the McFadden button and logo caught my eye because of it's use of old-fashioned 3-D colors. Almost as if the two "M"s are one "M" that stands out from the surface of the button -- if you are wearing 3-D glasses.

Looking at the button closer, I noticed that the overlapping brown color is not actually made of overlapping colors. It's a third printed color that simulates the overlap.
