This was an illustration I did in Illustrator a while back for a design company advertising 3 new cell phones. I used a curved perspective, which has it's own curvelinear logic. However, whoever worked on it in post-production didn't seem to grasp this concept as they "corrected" my illustration by making the line on the corner of the building more straight than curved. The line of the pole should match the line of the building to make sense in space. Instead it looks amaturish.
Also, the lines of a Movie Marque should also follow this logic and the letters ideally should be on top of them, not in-between them. It's embarrasing to show the second one, even though this is the one that was published.
What can you do? As an illustrator, apparently nothing.
