Aaron created the Falsum, a fully worked branding guideline with templates and a style guide for a wordmark and logo for resisting Trumpism.
The falsum "⊥" (Upside down T, Uptack or Eet) is a symbol used in various mathematic disciplines, but throughout them it shares the meaning of "arbitrary contradiction" and "false." Wiktionary further defines falsum as meaning "an untruth, falsehood, fraud, deceit, lie; forgery."
The upside-down T aspect also obviously refers to a rejection of Trump, his hatred, fear, and policies. It's literally the inverse of the first letter of his name. (This also works for anti- Tea-Party, Theresa May, Tyrant, Torture, Totalitarianism, etc.)
I believe this is a powerful symbol for us to rally around. And we need a symbol.

The web is vast, and while there’s room for everyone, competition is stiff when it comes to landing on that first page of a Google search. That’s why developers aren’t afraid to spend exorbitant amounts of time and money on search engine optimization (SEO) to ensure their sites rank higher than others. However, not all […]
Many of us enjoy the aesthetic of vintage electronics, but trying to use most hardware from the 1950’s isn’t necessarily practical. This is especially true where speakers are concerned. While most of us can appreciate the old-school feel of retro speakers, they have a hard time matching the convenience and power delivered by today’s Bluetooth speakers. […]
