I attended CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference), and wanted to share some examples of visual communications I saw. Looking through my tote bag, I’m struck by how eclectic the group was, as well as the reliance on traditional American symbols.

“Gitmo Saves Lives” – The iconic orange jumpsuits, made famous by critical media coverage of the Guantanamo Bay prison, now used to support it.
