So Whatcha Think?


Do the red stars make me look communist?

[UPDATE:] I’m told by a friend that I should shut the hell up (paraphrasing) and “not be that guy.” You know the guy. The one who designs his own stuff, etc. You know, political consultants are, in my opinion, the worst political candidates. See e.g. Ralph Reed.

Full disclosure: I have never aborted nor paid to abort a child in the Marianas Islands or anywhere else, nor have I taken money from Big Chief Screaming Eagle to block Big Chief Smokin’ Joe’s casino project.

    the basic design is nice–i am not sure about the red stars–but blue and white has been good for other gop candidates–like saxby and sonny

    I’m not feeling the italicized “Erick”.

    The red stars are fine. It’s your Sweedish heritage that makes you look communist.

  3. GAWire says:

    Btw, “Erick” needs to be italicized so it doesn’t look like a typo … i.e., ErickErickson. Don’t want to make voters swerve off the road b/c they think they’re seeing double

  4. kendrial says:

    I agree with Icarus the italicized “Erick” is stupid you shoud instead center the “Erick” inroder to distinguish it from the Erickson. Who named you anyway? Good Luck! 🙂

    Looking Communist might not be all that bad for a politician in Macon…

    You should switch them for a YKK zipper and a nu-way hot dog if you really want to win some votes.

    I guess it’s ok, for a guy. Personally, I’d make it pink and lavender, with a lots of little sparkly smiley-faces that will wink at you – for the online version that is.

  7. Demonbeck says:

    You did block Bull Moose from the front page.

    How much is it worth to you that we keep that from the media?

    Save some money on printing and go with one color + white. Simple fonts (like the one you are using) with serifs are always best and easy to read while driving by the signs. Do you want people to identify/recognize your name or a logo? the logo will not be on the ballot…

    yes, sparkles would be pretty! fill in your name with sparkles!

    “Erick can make Macon shine”

  10. Bull Moose says:

    Well, let’s remember how Moosegate started. It started because of my comments in regards to the vaccination for Cervical Cancer issue.

    Sincere people like Erick need to be encouraged to run for office and here at Peach Pundit, we bloggers need to do what we can to support one of our own.

    Erick, I think you need to get rid of the stars, put your first name in the same font and size as your last name and align them to the left. I would increase the size of City Council to fill up underneath of your name. The colors are great.

    AGAIN, I would really appreciate being allowed back on the front page. Help me out folks!

  11. Doug Deal says:

    I don’t like the skid marks below his name. They look like the bloody tire tracks one would leave while fleeing a hit and run.

  12. Holly says:

    Honestly, I agree with the red line at the bottom. I’m not sure it looks like blood, but I still think it looks odd.

    I need to lose weight. Several of my ancestors were chiefs. I can take up smoking. My name is Joe. If the money is right, Big Chief Smokin’ Joe can move and campaign for you.

  14. Bull Moose says:

    Shep! I love it man! Will you email me that so that I can print it out and pass it around at the convention???

  15. GOPeach says:

    Dang it Ercik if you must run… I’ll weigh in-

    Jill is right ONLY 2 COLORS!
    If you are going to slant one word, Slant the other also. You want to keep it easy to read.

    Loose the red lipstick under Erickson and bold
    ERIC really big on top with ERICSON going underneath and then City Council.

    The stars look too puffy – Make’em skinny.

    Clint: I just have the copy I upload to photobucket. I didn’t save the original. Just do a right click and save.

    I’ll post some more Erick signs, plus reveal his deep, dark family secret on the “More Signs” thread.

    You could just have “Erick” on the sign.

    There is a distinct advantage of your name being written twice so it could work.

    Best of luck mate!
