Sagmeister & Walsh: Pins Won’t Save the World

I simply cannot promise that this will be my last US Election post. There’s just too much good content out there that’s been accumulated since Trump took to the post to become the next President of the USA (not going to happen)

The infamous Sagmeister & Walsh have created 40 illustrated badges in protest against Donald Trump. The unique messages are encouraging people to vote for Hillary Clinton, whilst promoting tolerance (and all things surrounding kindness and love that you’d never hear coming out of Trump’s tiny mouth).

Enamel badges and patches are currently very on trend, which are sold in huge fashion brands such Topshop, ASOS, Zara (controversial) etc. Although the target audience – millennials – are mainly liberal, only 26% of them voted in 2012, with 48 million missed votes. So, the designs are another ploy to get young people off their asses and vote! Sagmeister and Walsh’s own designs feature alongside contributions from a variety of their friends and colleagues, including Brian Rae, Jean Jullien, Timothy Goodman, Olimpia Zagnoli, Ward Sutton, Will Bryant, Coucou Suzette, Adam JK, Ro & Co Studio, Jon Contino, and HORT.
