For starters lets just say Happy New Year to everyone. Vacations are over and this blog is now active again.
Lets start with a bang “Shall We?!”.
“No matter your opinion of Donald Trump, he is set to sit in office for the next 4 years. It may not seem that long until you see that amount of time in days, 1462 to be exact. No matter who it is, a lot can go wrong in 1462 days.”
This is the premise of Kurt McGhee for creating a “magic” calendar.
I love guerrilla projects. The pure and raw emotion that, some designer or artist who creates a project like this, wants to convey is amazing. And it amuses me. I got nothing against Trump. Couldn’t care less… But this project is very very aluring.
The calendar runs from January 20th, 2017-January 20th, 2021, all of the days Trump will hold office. The poster is available for purchase in here.
“I wanted to create this poster to remind people daily that he’s in control and to also give them a minimal therapy session as they mark off each day that passes.
After speaking with friends and family I found that Trump supporters view the poster in a positive light, for them it is a symbol of pride and celebration. As I attempt to write about the project in an unbiased manner I realize that no one is going to throw in the towel and as I wake up in the coming mornings I will be reminded of greatness and failure and be driven to use my freedom to inspire the change I wish to see in our world. “
