you had me at "MIKE TYSON. PUNCHED IN THE HEAD FOR A LIVING"
The "loading..." in the qualifications section is good. :)
lol this is my favorite part
Dissapointing to see political propaganda on DN.
Do you need a shoulder to cry on?
Trump's protectionist trade policies would severely hurt the tech and design industries. Additionally, his culturally toxic ideas also stand in stark contrast to what tech & design represent. The design community should be strongly against this blight on American politics. So I'd say this content is absolutely appropriate to be on here.
Political propaganda is a large part of design. I welcome seeing more more examples of propaganda over here to access the methods they use to communicate their message. It's also nice to see design from the world outside Silicon Valley.
All design is propaganda. Absolutely DN is the place for this: strong art concept, superb execution. Maybe you'd prefer your content filtered for you? I recommend China's internet.
Loaded replies. Regarding politics, I advocate for objectivity and civil debating. This roots the opposite. From a designers mentality, one should do own research by critically examining all sides and make conclusions yourself. Plenty of examples of propaganda in the mainstream news media in case you're short on the dose.
Really nice design and informative! I like everything about this except for the Hillary Clinton endorsement at the bottom; you should not tell people who to vote for.
Nothing wrong with that, especially because she's the only viable alternative right now.
Yes, the message feels stronger without the endorsement actually.
This is beautiful, regardless of your political affiliation. I love you hum
We love you too, Connor!
I hope everyone that upvoted this would have done the same if it were hireclinton.com. It is well done, but it would be just as easy to replace the names, faces and links.
This is not even remotely true. Sure, you could make a website bashing her. But you couldn't question her resume or simply list quotes that make her look like a fool.
My concern is that this is being upvoted highly based on politics as opposed to the merit of the work. This page could be about Santa Claus for all I care.
Your comment seems to be the only one centering on the politics of it and ignoring the design (which IMO is pretty cool and effective).
Wow! Second paragraph is so on point. Look how many words start with 'i' (both cases).
More than happy to see a political agenda here especially when it's so well executed.
I am of course biased but that's because I'm relatively sane and well adjusted.
This is amazing. So well done. Love the endorsement bit— very clever :P
Something I’ve been thinking about lately is how to design for effective communication with the "other side" (with regards to any diametrically opposed viewpoint—not specifically Trump supporters in this case). All of these things are fun and hilarious but they are so clearly aimed at validating the positions of those already voting for Hillary. They do nothing to pull people across the aisle.
I'm currently reading Don't Even Think About It: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Ignore Climate Change which explores human's cognitive blindspots, among other evolutionary quirks, to explain climate denialism. A big part of these problems revolve around how we communicate them, and as designers and communicators we should be thinking about how to do a more effective job of that.
Love everything about this! Informative, funny and particularly like the ending of the journey!
