This project’s goal was to create a pastiche poster based on a current political or social theme in the style of a past art movement. Donald Trump and his win of the 2016 Presidency became the focus of the project where I get to visually describe my feelings about that.
The movement of the Russian Constructivists was chosen to be the design aesthetic used to create the poster for a number of reasons. Firstly, it was chosen because that movement was known for a lot of political promotion and very powerful imagery which lends itself to this important topic. Then it was also chosen because it just felt like a natural choice with the allegations regarding the Russian investigation in the election.
