Err, Dribbble is not a political website. Why are you posting this here?
about 2 years ago
well it IS a design and whatever it promotes or says should be irrelevant
It's not really irrelevant though is it? We're not exactly going to be talking about the design here. This will be a political discussion, thus it should probably be removed.
So if posted a design I did for obama's presidential campaign i would be considered political and should be removed?
I would adjust the kerning between the "A" and the "D"... not a big fan of the grey drop shadow... seems a bit muddy... maybe a shadow that pulls more of the earthtone colors from the surrounding area. Also, I want to see "Evil Bert" at his side, I heard he was present at the raid, here is a pic: http://farm1.static.flickr.com/59/184391832_c8e1f9a466.jpg
@Mitch if they choose to comment on the political view then that is their fault for not realizing this is a design space. this is a design and therefore has the right to be here
Of all the crap on Dribbble, 2 people are going to complain about the relevance of this? Give me a break. And by the way, IT DEPICTS AN EVENT THAT JUST HAPPENED. How much more relevant are you going to get?
To Ali, I love this. I could see it being used on a billboard, no other text required. It says what it needs to and nothing else. And it brings a little friendliness to an otherwise morbid event.
First off, from what I can tell this isn't a political piece. It isn't stating an opinion one way or the other - just a fact.
Second, even if it were a political piece who's to say this isn't going to be used in a project? I don't see anything in Dribbble's terms against posting politically driven design.
If you have feedback on the design, go ahead. Otherwise leave the guy alone.
I am always surprised how allergic some people are to something that is »political«. Does »political« hurt?
Apart from that I don’t think getting feedback on the design was the motivation of this post. As long as we don’t have too much of them I think we can pretty much relax about it or maybe even enjoy these off-topic/off-purpose posts.
Though I don't find this shot particularly compelling from a design standpoint, I applaud Ali for doing something real with Dribbble. We could stand to have more stuff like this to drown out the vast ocean of SNES controllers and social media icons.
I like it.
Simply straight to the point. No extra flare or extraneous design elements.
What person is on the other side of this argument? Good one Ali.
Thank you all for this great discussion.
