The Trump administration is only going one direction before election day - more divisive, racist, and absurd.
I only think of the absurdity from Lieutenant Colonel Kilgore in Apocalypse Now. "Charlie don't surf!" A racist, over the top, and purely American mentality. It's overt. It's divisive. It's a parody of American ideals presented in film.
The problem is Trump is at the pinnacle of American power. The President is saying overt, divisive, racist rhetoric. He means it.
My poster is a parody of the absurdity of Trump's remarks in the same way the film Apocalypse Now did in 1979.

By thinking critically about the design that exists around us - evaluating what works, what doesn’t and why - we can apply new perspectives and rigor to our work designing applications and systems and communicate more effectively through design.
Our observations range from big corporate rebrands to local business street fliers. With each, we’ve taken the time to break down the designs and offer our point of view via a ranking system modeled after the Robert Parker wine rating system.
Unsatisfactory: Does not achieve design or communication goals.
Satisfactory: Just enough, sufficient, fine or “sure.”
Good: It’s good.
Very Good: Better than most but not exceptional.
Exceptional: Unusually good, rare, outstanding.
We love looking at new things, so if you want us to evaluate something you have seen or made, feel free to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org, and be sure to sign up for the quarterly Thought Merchants email to get new observations delivered right to you.
