It’s a family. The Wassersteins.
Say the head of the family, let’s say his name was Larry Wasserstein. If Larry behaved the way Donald behaves, for even a six week period, the family would get together and say, “Jesus, somebody better call the doctor.” Then they’d ask him to step down. But Trump’s the president and he can lie about anything from the time he wakes up to what he has for lunch and he’s still the president. I don’t get that. I’m tired of people being bewildered about anything he say: “I can’t believe he said that”. We gotta stop that and instead figure out ways to protect ourselves from him. We know he’s crazy. We gotta take care of ourselves here now.

Dave by way of this isn’t happiness™

Open letter
Back in March, Brandon Stanton‘s open letter to Donald Trump was among the most-shared posts in the history of Facebook. In the process, it turned Mr. Stanton, already a best-selling author, into a web sensation.

It shows how little effect content marketing can have in the material world.

the end of post-war Germany.

Open Letter to Donald Trump

Mr. Trump,

I try my hardest not to be political. I’ve refused to interview several of your fellow candidates. I didn’t want to risk any personal goodwill by appearing to take sides in a contentious election. I thought: ‘Maybe the timing is not right.’ But I realize now that there is no correct time to oppose violence and prejudice. The time is always now. Because along with millions of Americans, I’ve come to realize that opposing you is no longer a political decision. It is a moral one.

I’ve watched you retweet racist images. I’ve watched you retweet racist lies. I’ve watched you take 48 hours to disavow white supremacy. I’ve watched you joyfully encourage violence, and promise to ‘pay the legal fees’ of those who commit violence on your behalf. I’ve watched you advocate the use of torture and the murder of terrorists’ families. I’ve watched you gleefully tell stories of executing Muslims with bullets dipped in pig blood. I’ve watched you compare refugees to ‘snakes,’ and claim that ‘Islam hates us.’

I am a journalist, Mr. Trump. And over the last two years I have conducted extensive interviews with hundreds of Muslims, chosen at random, on the streets of Iran, Iraq, and Pakistan. I’ve also interviewed hundreds of Syrian and Iraqi refugees across seven different countries. And I can confirm— the hateful one is you.

Those of us who have been paying attention will not allow you to rebrand yourself. You are not a ‘unifier.’ You are not ‘presidential.’ You are not a ‘victim’ of the very anger that you’ve joyfully enflamed for months. You are a man who has encouraged prejudice and violence in the pursuit of personal power. And though your words will no doubt change over the next few months, you will always remain who you are.

Sincerely,
Brandon Stanton

Now what?!
Typographers exhale. Two most obvious changes in typographic tendencies are:

 

 

All caps for headlines.
Serif type replaces sans serif type.

 

 


Google sans serif

Remember this recent blunder?

 

 

Googel serif

And what beauty it used to be?

 

 

 

 

Returning tendencies in design

Authorative replaces beating around the bush. Most modern tendencies you contemporary media designers are wishing for or take for granted are being confirmed though. “Simplicity”, “directness”, “readability” and “ease of use”.

We will see if and how “responsive”, “accessible” or “transparent” will keep up. Responsive OS should have top priority with any business minded person. By all means.

That said the design tendencies closely resemble or even match those of start-ups.

 

 

European designers knock it out and finally follow or supersede international standards

The presidency of Donald Trump may have the ring of a wake up call for European designers.
Listen to what the people want from you as a designer and disregard some of what award shows, trade magazines and experts want you to believe.

Trump-Clinton debate
Disenchantment with politics has been around since the early days of post ancient greek democracy. Before Bernie Sanders, the country missed out on an informed President who, much like Sanders, had his share in the daily lives of regular citizens.

Forty-Five Pin Project

 

 

Campaign pins
As history has proven, when done right, the small political pin can pack a big punch. So why settle on a single designer or slogan when you have the best designers in the world willing to help out? That’s the idea behind the Hillary Clinton campaign’s The Forty-Five Pin Project: Everyone from Stephen Doyle to Michael Bierut to Louise Fili has designed their own button in support of the campaign to make Clinton the 45th president of the United States.

Theresa May
“Should you believe that a woman is difficult who won’t accept objection, yes then the prime minister is a difficult woman” She is said to be strict and steady.

The first thing that struck me, was the stunningly beautiful costume in green and blue tartan she was wearing, then I was blown away by her shoes.

At the hour it cannot be confirmed that any of this is an indication the British PM would commit to a bottom-up type of mindset.

Many believe there is to much attention spent on shoes I think she is amazing at how she stands out from the suits. Congrats to all three, Cameron, Theresa May and Boris Johnson.
