Sound concept, but in my opinion you'd have done better by hewing closer to the Mad Fold-ins model.

Er... I don't see how. This picture is simply an illustration of my thought processes as I sat at the table waiting for my tacos, and I saw the bottle half-obscured by the sugar holder, and the word NANCY jumped out at me.

I don't see how the Mad Fold-In model would apply to this other than showing the entire warning label, and then doing this to it, which would take two steps to do what this picture accomplishes in one.

Or am I misunderstanding you?

No, I misunderstood the picture - I thought you were aiming for the Mad Fold-In style. Sorry!

Ah, I see. No, the font similarity is just a coincidence.

CHEAP  PUBLISHERS   MAY  BE  INCLINED  TO  KNOCK
  OFF  AN ESTABLISHED IDEA  FROM AN OLD MAG, BUT
  MONEY CHANGES HANDS UNETHICALLY, WHICH IS WHY
 MAGAZINE  LAWYERS  RELENTLESSLY  SUE THEM, AND
FOLLOWING THAT,  THEY END UP  IN SQUALID, LIVED-IN
STY-LIKE APARTMENTS  IN WHICH THEY ARE MISERABLE

Now you're just showing off, you shamelessly clever person, you.
