There’s a movement afoot for a new candidate and a contest that the logo factory 99designs is running right now to create a logo for Deez Nuts, the presidential candidate/15-year-old Iowa farm boy giving nutsy old Donald Trump a run for his money.

“Little is known about Deez Nuts,” says Aimee Grove for 99designs, “and we thought it would be fun for our design community to create a campaign logo that could define ‘the face of a generation.’ The contest is in progress here, and we expect dozens of designs to flow in over the next few days.” (Top and bottom design by Habitus.)

While I’m not a fan of spec work or contests (as problematic for the profession), Deez Nuts sounds like a promising alternative to Demz Bozos.
