A Bunch of Crock

A little warning: this is not the typical dwl post. It’s politically charged, and may be offensive to some of you. But I have to say, when I received this submission, I was really impressed by the creator’s commitment to taking a stand in such a heated political climate. Safwat Saleem, an Arizona-based, Pakistani-born designer and filmmaker, developed A Bunch of Crock—an exhibition and poster series funded through Kickstarter—as a reaction to the current political landscape, as well as his experieences living in the U.S. post-9/11.

If you take a look at the posters on his site, you can see specific quotes and sources that each are in response to. And before reacting to their messages, I encourage you to watch this Kickstarter video and listen to his story. It certainly left an impression on me.


  1. Wonderful. Rather than getting angry he gets beautiful. Providing a gentle provokation of thought in the viewer.

  2. I just finished reading “Victore or, Who Died and Made You Boss?” and I’m really glad to see some passion and fearlessness out there (and being shared on this blog).

  3. Too true to ignore. Art evokes Norman Rockwell, Rosie the Riveter, and early TV advertising, and sort of screams “Take us back to the Eisenhower years when life was a lot simpler and less threatening for white guys (like me).”
