Admiral Ackbar TRAP poster in the style of Fairey's HOPE design

There are a lot of Fairey remixes around, but this Admiral Ackbar/Star Wars TRAP poster's pretty nicely executed.

  1. I am so bloody bored of this re-cylcing of the ‘Hope’ thing. A slight glimpse of these damn colours scrolling up onto my screen makes and I audibly exhale.
    Yes, I liked it at the time and it’s a iconic image, but come on now lets move along!

    1. I am so bloody bored of this re-cylcing of the ‘Hope’ thing… Blah… Blah… Blah…

      It’s a SCHMUCK!!!

  2. I prefer the Axe Cop version:

  3. Ugh. Can we PLEASE stop with the Obama poster parodies? They’re as old now as Matrix “bullet-time” parodies.

  4. “As a non-USA ‘dude’, I feel beholden to pointing out that the content of these palimsistic (sic) versions of the early 20th century-style propaganda poster many Americans seem to be ‘suckered’ by is not helping matters. Hold the fucker to his word, or take the power back. 2nd rate graph/design masturbation dialogue is doing NOTHING for your ‘image’.”– Sincerely, Earth.

      1. Actually now that I think about it, this version is the BEST (conceptually) of the lot. That is, if the subject is referring to the intentions behind the original poster…

  5. I’m fine with Obama poster parodies. He is still the president, so they still seem kind of current to me. What I could do with a little less of in my life is Star Wars stuff. Could we find a fresher source of pop-culture references, please?

    1. For my part, I am sick to death of all the free ice cream. What I need is a complaint box, delivered to my home, free, daily, where I can kvetch about what other people make for their own amusement and selfishly present to me for my approval, like the roman emperor I am.

      And grapes, BRING ME GRAPES

    1. I’m wearing that shirt as I type.

      And thinking that these various parodies are about Obama is missing the point – They’re not about O, they’re about the over-simplification of complex, nuanced idea into dumbed-down, “Iconic” slogans. Such as:

  6. It’s funny because you can replace Akbar with Obama, McCain, Bush, or basically anyone and it’s still accurate… 

  7. I’m just happy whenever I see one of these that actually required some graphic arts skill to produce. At least 95% of the “hope” parodies out there are just lazy posterizing filter jobs that took 5 minutes in Photoshop.
