The other day while watching the election, among everything else that stood out to me, is that the politcal parties in the United States, specifically the two major parties, the GOP and the Democratic Party, need such an update. not that they are horrible, but they could be substantially better. Here is my take DEMOCRATIC PARTY The oldest of the two major parties, the Democratic Party was founded in 1828 by Andrew Jackson. Its previous logo was a donkey, as the media originally coined the jackass to represent Jackson and his party. However, the party has changed a lot since then, and the symbol deserves a change. *REDESIGN 1.0.0 CAN BE FOUND HERE* *DIFFERENCES CAN BE FOUND HERE* FONT: The typeface I decided to use was a slightly custom variation to the font MS Reference Sans Serif WHAT'S UP WITH THE LIGHT BLUE BARS?: The bars are a representation of the equal sign (=), the symbol used to represent equality (no :censored:.) It fits the modern party platform quite well, actually. WHAT ABOUT A GAY PRIDE VERSION OF THIS?: I got you right here v1.0.0, here v1.0.1. REPUBLICAN PARTY (GOP) The Republican Party, also known as the Grand Old Party, is the younger of the two major U.S. political parties. The symbol is an elephant, which was originally coined by Thomas Nast in 1874. I saw the Elephant as fitting for the GOP, so I went ahead and completely redesigned the iconic square elephant thing and made it look, you know, like an actual elephant THAT FRONT FOOT DOESN'T LOOK RIGHT: I know, if someone would like to give some advice on the foot, I'd really appreciate it. WHERE IS THE WORDMARK?: I don't really have an idea for one, but I made a POTUS version with a placeholder wordmark. ARE THERE ANY ALTERNATE BACKGROUNDS, LIKE WITH THE DEMOCRATS?: Yes, there is. Right here.
Ok, I know the major American political season is over, but I couldn't stop thinking about the Libertarian Party. I've never considered myself a libertarian, nor do I plan to, but I thought about how they're trying to legitimize themselves and other 3rd parties. Therefore, they'd need a strong, but unique, identity. I crafted these up based on the Liberty Bell, which is basically the start of the word "libertarian", and came up with two options I liked. One that goes to the all-American (Or French, Russian, Australian, British, etc...) color scheme of red, white and blue, and another logo that keeps the Libertarian color of yellow, while adding in blue. I feel like there are definitely some improvements to be made, but I figured I'd post the first drafts here and see what y'all thought! Thanks!
