Background

There are tons of false facts and fake news.

When it comes to voting, research shows that most voters aren’t actually familiar with each candidate’s political policies and stances. It’s no surprise considering the torrent of click-baiting and “alternative facts” that circulate social media and news outlets at large.

Insight

People are quite uninformed about the candidates that they support and ultimately vote for.

In facts, an article in the New York Times, about “What Voters Want” included a quote from Daniel Oppenheimer, a psychology professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, which stated:

“Most people have no idea where most candidates stand on most issues, so they just assume that the candidate agrees with them. People will actually change their position to align with the candidates they prefer, and will also assume that candidates agree with them on important issues, even when that isn’t true.”

Idea

Create AI of the candidates based on the truth.

By aggregating fact-checked videos, articles, and voting histories of each candidate, CNN will create AI bots for the public to interact with through AskTheCandidate.com

At AskTheCandidate.com you will be able to create a private town hall meeting with any candidate of your choice through video chat, allowing for the unique opportunity to ask candidates whatever politically inclined questions you might have. 

Brand Identity

Logo

The logo was inspired by the American flag. Using stars and strips to make it more symbolic. The overall design is perfectly measured to be geometric.

Primarily the main two colors are inspired by the colors of the American flag. And tone it down to bring modern feelings. And use greyscale to make the whole product clean, and simple.
