Re: Win or Die


Am I missing the relevance of Tungsten & Iodine? Or are you using them because they work with your text?

It's a reference to the branding of Breaking Bad. See:

Ah, okay. Next question - is there a relevance to mashing Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones?

Well, mashups, in general, are a common design meme on Woot, and these two Cable TV franchises are very distinctive in their branding, and have similar following. (It looks like there are some other mashups in the fog, as well, using Adventure Time, Dr. Who, Back to the Future, etc.)

Right, but a good mashup plays off of a shared element between the things being mashed. What are you playing off of here? I guess both shows are high stakes (power and wealth vs. disgrace and death) but that seems kind of thin. This is a visually appealing design but I don't see the reason for mashing up these shows. I'm not defending other designs but I don't think it works as a mashup.
