All presidential candidates develop a brand – some catchy logo or phrase that will stick in people’s heads and create a positive image in much the same way companies brand products to make them more recognizable. The image on the right is Donald Trump’s official logo.
On Wednesday, July 22, 2015, tickets for the Genesee County GOP’s Lincoln Day Dinner went on sale. The date of the fund raiser is August 11, 2015. The keynote address will be delivered by none other than Donald Trump, who is easily kicking every other candidate in the teeth in the polls.
And as Michigan braces for the Genesee County GOP’s keynote speaker at the Lincoln Day Dinner, there’s something wrong with this picture … or in this case, the logo used to advertise Donald Trump’s presence at the event.
That image in the upper right corner is NOT Donald Trump’s official campaign logo. It looks more like a merging of Donald Trump’s hair with the Aquafresh toothpaste logo.
So if this isn’t the official Donald Trump campaign logo, where did it come from?
If you haven’t seen the news yet, Donald Trump, real-estate mogul and TV personality famous for his show The Apprentice, has announced he’s officially running for presidency in the US in 2016.
We want you to create a campaign logo for Donald Trump. We are open to tongue-in-cheek ideas, as well as serious logos that he might actually consider using.
Think about logos incorporating the following:
– Trump’s iconic wig
– His boasting attitude toward the presidency
– His famous line from The Apprentice show – “You’re fired”

Good luck, try your best, make us laugh, be original and (most importantly) have fun!

And here, on the Design Crowd website you will find the logo the Genesee County GOP used for their eventbrite ticket sale page.
The designer’s name is Ryan Beavor. He’s a student at Auburn University in his third year of industrial design. Now that we know where the logo came from, there’s a few more questions: Did Ryan Beavor donate his contest logo to the Genesee County Republicans? Are the Genesee County Republicans even aware who designed that logo, and that it was created for a contest with the specific instructions, “make us laugh?”
The GOP continues to deliver comedy gold, and it’s still 2015.
