This is probably the most instantly recognizable and most impactful typography in the entire country, proving that graphic design doesn't fucking exist and I am dumb as shit for studying it

@bigegg what's more recognizable is just the red baseball cap. people see the red hat and think trump and then try to figure out if it's a trump hat or not. more than a commentary on graphic design i think it's a commentary on how we make connections between colors/objects is socialized.

but also from a propaganda perspective it's pretty good design. it's simple, easily reproduced, and communicates both a real sentiment and a covert message of danger.

@GayNiffler the whole like ill fitting hat and kind of poorly tracked out like boring serif type kind of sells the whole "I am dumb as shit, I look stupid as hell and I am incredibly cruel" aesthetic

@bigegg yeah exactly. like, unlike the democrats, it knows what it's doing. trump's propaganda isn't like, ww2 buy war bonds propaganda. it's there to make him money and spread a message of hate. this is a successful piece of design because it does those two things and literally nothing else.
