Logos Logos Everywhere

The images are digitally manipulated photos of England, not actual depictions of how São Paulo appears sans advertising (I’m guessing shops and restaurants would still be able to identify themselves), but the Flickr set “São Paulo No Logo,” near the bottom of the article shows untouched images. To be honest though, I probably wouldn’t have even guessed what was missing if I hadn’t read the title first. I would have just said “People and cars.” It made me realize how little I notice most ads because I’m so used to being bombarded with them on a daily basis. But that just means future advertisers will have to work that much harder to gain consumer attention, right? What lengths will they (we?) go to? Could restricting ad space maybe be a good idea?
