Donald Trump Magazine Cover Design (2017)
Here is the third project related to my university introduction to design course. The direction for this project was, to find a quote and convey it's meaning, through design. In addition, any imagery and the design itself, must visually enhance the quote. There has to be a meaning, for the imagery presented within the design.
The quote I chose was: I will build a great, great wall on our southern border and I will have mexico pay for that wall. - Donald Trump. This quote was inspired by the recent news articles declaring that, the United States is testing prototype concrete border wall slaps in San Diego. I was also inspired by, a Time Magazine article by Maya Rhodan titled: Democrats Say President Trump's Border Wall Could Cost $67 Billion.
To preface this, I will say that I’m not overtly political. I am Canadian, so I’m not very involved with American politics. In this project, I wanted to present the quote from a critical media standpoint. The design is of satirical intent, to show that this quote is unrealistic, childish and not a positive way to solve the illegal border entry problem.
The full design took more than 40 hours to create, not including basic sketches and idea planning. I only had four and half days to put the digital design together, so I worked non-stop during that period. If anyone is interested in purchasing a print of this design, please let me know, I may order a few to sell
