In the run up to the US presidential election, SFMOMA are asking designers/design firms to rebrand the United States. The above is a small selection from MGMT who’re remaking the US flag using stats and infographics.
1) FACE RACE In 2011, Americans spent over 10 billion USD on plastic surgery. The federal budget for NASA’s space operations was 3.5 billion USD.
2) THE BIG HOUSE One out of every 32 Americans in the US is either in prison or on parole from prison.
3) HEADS OF STATE American Presidents, by race.
4) FOR SALE One out of every seven mortgages in the US was delinquent or in foreclosure during the first quarter of 2010.
