A spoof political candidate, “Honest” Gil ran first for Kentucky Senate in 2014, and then for president in 2016, to draw attention to the role of money in politics. I designed all the elements of the campaign, from his online presence, to advertising and swag for Gil’s appearances.
“Team Rich” was a play on Mitch McConnell’s slogan “Team Mitch.”

Large and small bus wraps. The Electra was partial, the Ford total.
Swag from Kentucky.
Gil’s self-serving nature was alluded to in his presidential logo, which was also a take-off on Obama’s “O” and Hillary’s “H” with arrow.
