Fake News Memes

Are you tired of watching friends on both sides of the aisle post fake news?

In 2017, after reading about how the Russians, the far right and the far left all used exaggerated or just plain fake posts on social media to I decicded to do something.

I collect vintage posters and was inspired by WWII war effort posters like these. I looked around creative commons and found a few images posters from that era. Some of these are really culturally insensitive but they were visually interesting and I thought the had potential to be re-purposed with themes for today’s social media.

I redesigned these posters for today. I changed out the dated elements and tried to equate the idea that fact checking was patriotic. Good Americans and democracy participants should want accurate and truthful information.
