10 Hidden Messages In Presidential Campaigns’ Logos

Donald-Trump-Bad-Hair-Photo-1-1

Donald Trump’s hair have been running for president for years.

The 2016 presidential campaign is now in full swing, and this week alone had seen two more Republican candidates – Jeb Bush, former governor of Florida, and real estate magnate Donald Trump – throwing their hats into the ring. (Although in Trump’s case, it was probably his hair instead of his hat). Jeb Bush has already released his campaign logo, and the media immediately picked up on the fact that Jeb Bush chose not to put his last name on the logo, and therefore seemed to distance himself from his father, president George H. W. Bush, and his brother, president George W. Bush. However, this is not the only hidden message in Jeb’s campaign logo, or in the logos of other 2016 presidential campaigns, for that matter. Here are 10 of the hidden messages in some the 2016 campaign logos – revealed.

    LOL!

    I was watching CNN the other day and some genius, clearly a true genius, was dissecting the intricacies of the exclamation mark in Jeb’s logo. Oh the humanity….

  3. First and foremost, thank you ever-so-much for the pic of Trump. I’d not seen it before. I can now die with a smile on my lips. I am THRILLED that he joined the race and pray he makes the cut for the August debate. He’ll suck all the seriousness out of the room. It’ll be a grand piece of performance art.

    Rand’s logo looks like it has a tongue of flames. Maybe he’s a saint.

    Do you remember Mitt Romney’s logo? Someone posted it next to an Aquafresh toothpaste logo and it was almost identical.

      I am also glad that Trump is running because he’ll provide a much-needed comic relief. Have you seen a mashup of best lines from his announcement speech?
      However, I’m a little concerned that every other Republican candidate will seem reasonable and presidential when compared to Donald.
      I looked up Romney/Aquafresh 2012 logo – either I forgot, or totally missed that back then, so thanks for the laugh.
      With Rand Paul logo, I’ve also realized that the torch, or the tongue, separates the name into Egyptian god Ra and North Dacota, and I haven’t decided what to make of it.

      • Jeeze…I never thought of that. Trump is so far off the deep end that the others might look…dare I say?…presidential in comparison? Maybe that’s their plan all along. Maybe they’re a lot smarter than I give them credit for.

  4. I had not seen Rand’s logo. Fascinating, in a Pentecostal sort of way.
    Nice work on the Rubio gif!
    And, speaking of exclamation marks, I thought Jeb! was borrowing my hyperbole!, but apparently, it’s a re-run from his former campaign, so we’re cool. I mean, we’re cool!

      Yeah, why would he bother changing a logo from a successful campaign? I’m sure he’ll also be running his 2016 presidential campaign with the same promises he made to Florida back in 1994 or whenever that was.
      Your peace.love.hyperbole! logo has another important difference – it has no expiration date. 🙂

  15. you do bring up an interesting point. Jeb isn’t Bush’s name. Does it have to be his real name on the ballots? Will people get confused if they see John Ellis Bush? Will we have another event like the “hanging chads” where no one will vote for him because they’ll be too stupid to know that it’s him and he’ll lose the primary just on that? 🙂

      I don’t have an answer to that either. However, I think in Jeb’s home state of Florida, voters will get confused even if they show up to vote for Jeb! and the ballot says “Jeb” without an exclamation mark.

    Jeb Bush’s logo was actually inspired by his mother, who was often heard yelling “Damn it, Jeb!” But marketing analysts decided to shorten it for a better vsual impact…

    When you consider the amount of work, angst and money the candidates no doubt spent to develop these, complete with focus groups, they’re practically priceless works of art! I thought the “H” was the logo on the hotel I stayed in last weekend.

  20. I just can’t see another Bush in office, especially a Jeb Bush. Why the name Jeb? And why call more attention to it with an exclamation point? Did George Sr. have a secret obsession with the Beverly Hillbillies? Oh – wait that’s Jed. Same difference.

  22. lol, aw man, I was planning on never having a Jeb Bush logo in my house ever, but now I kind of want to get thousands, just to see if maybe one of them is a winner… I have scratch-award problems… Come to think of it, that was such a brilliant plan on his part maybe he deserves to win. And if he does I’ll go for a nice 4 year travel around the world with my winnings…

      I don’t think there’s that much of a jackpot in the Jeb lottery. Assuming that it’s not just an IOU, it may be enough just to pay for 4 years walking around the world and eating nothing but ramen noodles.
