In this poster, students employ the faded American flag as a backdrop. Here lady liberty is shown precariously holding up the word "vote". In this poster, students wanted to symbolize the lack of balance that has dominated our society's rights and freedoms. To them, it serves a reminder of the power a vote can have to reestablish ideas of peace and equality.
In another poster students take less idealized directions in their designs. Here we see a large floating head of Trump yelling and inside his open mouth a smaller floating head of Clinton yelling. These rabid, visceral postures in the image afford the viewers more raw interpretations that focus on the less glamorous traits and characteristics that are required for campaigning in the 21st century.
In another example, students take more straightforward approaches to designing a vote poster. Here we see students use the silhouetted figure, repeated to form a queue. Over them we see a fragment of the American flag and the phrase "get out the vote". The goal for this group of student was to create an image that used relatable motifs to symbolize democracy and the importance of a collective effort.
