About this ebook

"Politics Design" is a thought-provoking exploration of the powerful role that graphic design and marketing play in contemporary politics. Through a collection of striking visuals, author and graphic designer Carlos Simpson delves into the world of political stamps, revealing how these small but impactful tools have the power to shape public opinion and influence cultural perspectives.

This exceptional book highlights some of the most iconic moments in recent political history, including Brexit, the rise of Donald Trump in the United States, and other key global events. Using typography and layout as the exclusive basis for posters, signs, and stickers, Simpson reveals how social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook have transformed the political landscape, fundamentally altering the way campaigns are waged and voters are persuaded.

During a constant bombardment of information and an unprecedented level of media manipulation, "Politics Design" is a vital resource for anyone seeking to understand the complex dynamics of contemporary politics. Named one of the most promising references in this field by respected publications such as People, Associated Press, Time, Daily Mail, Newsday, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, The Guardian, Publishers Weekly, and Royal Mail, this book is essential reading for anyone seeking to make sense of the tumultuous world of modern politics.
