I have no talent for graphic design. Absolutely none whatsoever.
Mostly, that’s a disability I can live with. But sometimes, it’s a bummer.
It’s a bummer, for example, when Rahm Emmanuel comes up with a great snarky press release that suggests a great snarky bumper sticker or lapel button:
and I realize that I don’t know how to design that bumper sticker or button so as to remind those who see it that George W. Bush is the target.
If any reader is, or knows, someone with the appropriate talent, I’d be happy to pay for getting a couple of thousand of the things made up.
On reflection, I see that the above is obviously backwards. What we want is either:
1) The Bush-holding-up-the-fish-he’s-just-caught photo that was Photoshopped to show him standing in the flooded streets of New Orleans; or
2) A what-me-worry sketch of Bush, with or without fish; or
3) The graphics from the Bush-Cheney bumper sticker
with the text:
I can’t figure out whether adding “Re-elect Bush” or “Bush in ’08” would help drive the point home, or merely gild the lily.
