Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s campaign hired a graphic designer to create the campaign’s “Make America Great Again” logo.
The Donald J. Trump Foundation on Tuesday announced the hire of Rick Dees, a former digital marketing executive for Trump for President.
The Trump campaign has not yet released a formal announcement about the hiring.
Dees, an African-American, has been credited with designing and creating the logo for the Republican presidential nominee in the past.
In the years leading up to Trump’s nomination in June 2016, Dees helped design the logos for the GOP and Democratic parties and the Republican National Committee.
The Trump campaign said in a statement that the graphic designer will work in the Trump Campaign’s digital media and marketing operation.
“Rick Dees is an accomplished designer with more than a decade of experience designing logos and campaign materials,” the statement said.
“He has extensive experience designing campaign logo and branding for clients ranging from large corporations to local and state government agencies.
He is a veteran digital strategist, having designed campaign logos for President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Joe Manchin, Sen and Vice-President Joe Biden and former President Barack Obama.
Rick Deets’ extensive experience includes design work for the campaigns of both Republican and Democratic presidential candidates.
Dees has designed for both Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Rick has been named the Presidential Design Team’s digital strategist in the fall of 2019, according to a press release.
Deets’ new role will also include working on digital strategy, digital strategy development and other digital media.
