Just a few days ago, it was announced that Kanye West has designed a logo for the Blexit Movement – which was intended to encourage African-Americans to distance themselves from the Democratic Party, in the United States of America. The term Blexit is a portmanteau (black exit) that plays on Brexit (British exit). We thought, wow, this guy can do almost anything, although maybe not shocking at all since he called himself “a creative genius”. Now he’s dipping his toes in the graphic design world.
Then, people were starting to comment on the logo, some called it lazy design, and some call it ugly. Today, Kanye denied his involvement in the movement, and also denied designing for the logo (read it further).
Let’s take a look at the lazy design Blexit’s merchandise.
What do you think? We call it a collaboration gone wrong.
