This is not exactly data visualisation or graphic design. But it made me laugh the other day. And since we all made it to Friday, we could all do for a good laugh. Classify this under my interest in branding and visual identities.
Two weeks ago President Trump gave a speech at a conference for young conservatives. Uncontroversially, the organisation hosting the event projected on the screen an image of the seal of the President of the United States.
Or did they?
According to the report from the New York Times, it turns out some careless audiovisual guy lifted the wrong image from the internet. Instead of the presidential seal, he took an anti-Trump merchandise image.
He was fired.
So remember, properly source your images. A Google search isn’t the solution.
Happy Friday, all.
Credit for the imitation piece goes to Charles Leazott. I have no idea who designed the original seal.
