Sagmeister&Walsh创造徽章以激励千禧一代投票

+$In case you hadn't noticed, there's a presidential election coming up in the USA quite soon, and it's turning out to be one of the most contentious and divisive campaigns yet.

+$Never ones to shy away from sticky subjects,Sagmeister&Walsh+$have waded into the election with a new project: "Pins Won't Save the World". They've created a set of 40 illustrated badges with the aims of protesting against Donald Trump, encouraging people to vote for Hillary Clinton, and promoting love, tolerance and kindness.

Don't want a badge? Get some stickers instead!

+$Why badges? It's basically because enamel badges and patches are a hot trend right now, especially amongst those headline-grabbing millennials. And while millennials are largely very liberal, only 26 per cent of them voted in the 2012 election – amounting to around 48 million missed votes – and they're not actually that keen on Hillary Clinton.

+$Which, if you had your heart set on Bernie Sanders for president, probably seems a reasonable position to take. But with the polls narrowing and President Trump seeming like a possibility, Sagmeister & Walsh are out to try and motivate the millennials to register and vote for Hillary Clinton.

Hate stickers? How about some temporary tattoos?

+$The eye-catching collection of badges – with some also available as patches, tees, posters and stickers, not to mention bumper stickers, and some令人敬畏的纹身+$– features Sagmeister and Walsh's own designs, alongside contributions from a variety of their friends and colleagues including Brian Rae, Jean Jullien, Timothy Goodman, Olimpia Zagnoli, Ward Sutton, Will Bryant, Coucou Suzette, Adam JK, Ro & Co Studio, Jon Contino, and HORT.

Maybe some attractive patches? Just buy something, okay?

+$They're available now from S&W's new电子商务网站+$; get your orders in at the针脚不会拯救世界+$store, safe in the knowledge that they won't cost you a fortune. "We want everyone to be able to wear their heart (and politics) on their sleeves (or bags and jackets)," say S&W, "so merchandise will be priced low." All profits will be donated to Amnesty International's "+$The America I Believe In+$" Campaign.

Well, it wouldn't be Sagmeister & Walsh without a bit of full-frontal nudity

+$There's also an amazing-lookingInstagram帐号+$showcasing the various badge design, that's well worth a follow. And while S&W are well aware that their pins won't change the world, they argue that wearing them will at least make them feel a little better.

There's some great use of Instagram going on as well

+$"And we think convincing our like-minded liberal friends (especially in swing states) to remember to register and vote for Hillary could make a world of difference," they add.
