After watching the recent presidential debates, there's nothing we'd like to do more than give the Republicans a complete makeover -- physically and politically. New Gingrich's hair alone gives us so much to work with.

Thankfully, a San Francisco-based design company is allowing frustrated voters like ourselves to channel our political disappointment and create a new (unofficial) logo for both the Republican and Democratic parties, as part of a Super Tuesday contest.

The contest, which started today, ends next Tuesday, so best start thinking about how to illustrate your right-wing or lefty views outside of the traditional elephant and donkey (although the Democrats did introduce a new logo in 2008).

Here's how the contest works:

Once participants enter their logos at, the public will rate the designs, which will also be sent to politicians to judge. The 99Designs staff will take all these opinions into account before selecting the two winners -- one to represent Republicans and one to reflect Democrats.

The winning designs will be sent to the head of both national parties for their own consideration. Even better, the winners will get $500.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
