A candidate's considered their options, heard from their supporters, and has finally decided to run for president in 2016. What's next? Well, designing a campaign logo is definitely high on that list! A candidate's logo is one of the simplest, most effective ways in getting one's message out and creating brand recognition for the 2016 presidential election. This list compiles all the logos of each declared candidate!

Furthermore, we've dug into comments that some designers have made, questioning the efficacy of each presidential candidate's design. Each logo plays into the personality of its candidate, shaped by who they are. Some are big and loud, others are simple and direct, and some... well, some just don't quite make a lot of sense to most peopl, but supporters may totally get what's going on! That's the interesting part of these logos - sometimes they're made for someone else!

No matter what political stripe you are, there's plenty to enjoy with this list of 2016 presidential logos. Take a look at what the candidates have chosen and vote up the best and most effective campaign logos below!

    With a tagline of "From Hope To Higher Ground," it's not crazy to think of Mike Huckabee's logo as a direct contrast, a "reactionary logo," to Obama's "hope" and "change" narrative.

    The distortion of the A in Dr. Ben Carson's has its promoters and detractors, turning the second word into "'Merica," a popular refrain. Its simplicity has been praised as well.

    Lindsey Graham's logo is tiny, doesn't integrate with his website, and doesn't have a larger version for the web. Not surprising, given the man doesn't get on the Internet at all.

  • With "nice, light, almost cheerful" colors, designers appreciate Bernie Sanders's simple approach to his logo. Some don't particularly like "title gimmicks," which we'll interpret to mean the star over the "i."
