super-graphic super-tuesday (more pretty in 2008!)

maison21 the blog is not about political causes- the only position we will publicly take a stance on is that we are in favor of pretty things...

but with the primary here in california and it being "super-tuesday" across the nation, we were reminded of the following posters from the huffington post a friend sent us a while back. we loved them because of their crisp, bold, black and white graphics, and admired the fact that they didn't look like every campaign poster we've seen for the last 40 years. why must politcal advertising always be so ugly? the same old generic red, white and blue designs with sayings like "for change" and "for america". ugh- boring, and bland, and like most politicians themselves, they cater to the lowest common denominator.



so this political season, whether democrat or republican, conservative or liberal, maison21 is asking our candidates to make america a little more beautiful and give us cool and interesting graphics for our windows, lawns and automobiles! no more generic, red, white and blue- how about black and white like the posters shown, or go crazy with a little orange or aqua! maison21's campaign mantra is:
more pretty in 2008!

Yay, I'd vote for more pretty ANY day! But seriously, and I don't like to get all political...BUT, I'm pleading my American friends to vote wisely. Your decisions affect the entire world, not just the 50 united states. :)
