Detroit, MI-based designer Meg Jannott was looking for a personal creative challenge that was a little less daunting than a 365 make something every day project. She settled on rebranding United States presidents. She worked her way from Washington to Reagan and still has a few more to go, but it doesn’t look like she’ll make it to Obama before the election.
The designs pair classic portraits of each president with a variety of type treatments, some of which are more successful than others. Jannott is totally fine with that. She looks at failure as just another step on the road to success. Some of the interesting older presidents bring to mind design for boutique hotels. Can’t you just imagine a super hip hotel called the Washington or the James Madison? In fact, I there is a super hip boutique hotel in DC called Hotel George where I stayed with my husband on vacation a few years ago.
