Suggestions I received to improve the design:
-work on the white space
-dont necessarily have to show him, but base design off of what he stands for and his policies
-find a thin linear font
-connect the idea with the style more
The new design is on the right. I decided to try and make the style more related to Bernie Sanders, so I replaced the circles with his likeness. This adds more unity to the piece. The thinner font also makes the text look more geometric and simple, so it works better with the art movement of suprematism.
