Clinton’s Cringe-Inducing Design Contest

0529hillaryshirt.jpg

Like we’ve said before in the billion posts we’ve up before on the presidential primaries: we don’t like to get political or pick sides or anything, because that’s really not our place around here on a design blog. But for every story we’ve read or posted about the brilliance of the Obama campaign, do you ever wonder why there’s none of that about Clinton‘s camp? Well, judging from the just released Project T-Shirt on the candidate’s site, that’s why. It’s a Threadless-esque t-shirt design competition and you get to vote on the last five, the winner of which will be printed and used in however many weeks this race continues to drag along. The thing is, each of the top five entries are just so painful to look at, each featuring at least two things that will make you cringe and/or turn your head violently away. So, like it or not, if this is the best-of-the-best, Obama still beats Clinton, hands down, in attracting the design talent. Ouch.
