Propaganda and Graphic Design
Look: it’s a post that isn’t about the baby!
Historically, fascist and totalitarian regimes have had pretty good graphic design, tending toward a clean, uncluttered style. The connection is so strong and well-known that it’s a common source of parody and even direct criticism about Obama, who also has some pretty good designers.
(These are all from the Office of the National Counterintelligence Executive; past hits include the Total Information Awareness logo and the original Homeland Security design.)
