Lettering by Jessica Hische
John Mavroudis is one of the most influential contemporary illustrators. He was born in California (from a Greek father and an American mother) and gained international reputation for the cover of TIME magazine, featuring Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, created by her powerful quotes. Using the same method, he previously created the portrait of US President Donald Trump for The Nation.
He is also the designer who created the posters for the 60th anniversary of the Thessaloniki International Film Festival this year.
My Instagram feed these past days and weeks has once again seen a creativity explosion concerning the US election. From the very start, my favourite illustrators, letterers and designers, have been super supportive of the Biden campaign, creating posters for awareness and encouraging people to vote.
I have gathered here a small selection of work from all stages of the election: voting awareness and early voting, election day, anticipation for the results and finally, enormous joy and relief for the final verdict!
A new era begins for America.

Watching the final poll numbers roll in 🔢 #Election2020 In #CharlesAtlas’s 2011 installation, “Painting by Numbers,” a sea of digits swells and subsides over six acts. Instead of human dancers, the filmmaker and video artist cast the numbers 1 through 6 as the protagonists of his intricately choreographed video, evoking the pervasiveness of mathematical algorithms in our increasingly technologized society.

‘I don’t wanna go!’
And last but not least, watch this prophetic clip from a 2017 “Comedy Central” sketch, which perfectly captures exactly what’s happening in the White House right now. ‘Trump’ throwing an epic tantrum at primary school is so beautifully done!
_lorem_ipsum_or Monsieur Boz is creating powerful messages with calligraphy on ephemeral objects found on the street in Montreal and shares them on his Instagram account called Garbage Beauty. He calls his style calligraffiti. The “Fake News” television sets are my favourite, so relevant these days.
The same designer created this great lettering T-shirt. You can purchase here.
This post by Jessica Hische connected with me as a mom of 3 girls: She had a heartbreaking conversation with her daughter who told her that sometimes she looks in the mirror and wishes she had a different and more beautiful face… That inspired Hische to create this beautiful mirror with the message “You Are Enough”. You can pre-order it here.

This beautiful retro mosaic was recently installed in the entryway of a Brooklyn home. The Brownstone Project is committed to reviving the art of mosaics and offers custom entryway mosaic design and installation services, working with newly emerging craftsmen. I am imagining a beautiful “Athens” mosaic in the entryway of our home!
