I mean just take a look at the header image. It is to the point, effective and not too much color or exaggeration is used in this article:

I also think this basic Apple ad from back in the day represents great visual and graphic design concepts with its simplicity in motion:

I mean this is good design. The **** popular now with the metoo and SJW generation seems to be these over the top weird illustrations of people with fat legs and big shoes laying down sideways.

I mean this is the **** popular now for some reason or that gathers all the money for graphic designrs and media page views?

What does the art you describe have to do with social justice or the #meetoo movement? Can you describe your position better?

The first example is cool. I like it. The second is incredibly dated and made me throw up in little in my own mouth. The third example is a style of cartooning, not necessarily a complete design aesthetic.

I like the second one because it is simple yet mysterious and full of color. Good design does not have to be overly co plex and like a book letting the viewer fill in the gaps Sometimes is more powerful. I actually did similar stuff before finding this piece on an iPad without a stylus yet (my older iPad not my 2017 pro and now I have the Apple pen):

I suggest you check out a book called „the art of atari” great work on design.

Yes, I work in graphic design as well. I understand basic design theory...I am just not understanding what you are trying to get at with this thread and what the cartooning style you linked to has to do with social justice or the #meetoo movement. Can you explain that?

In you own graphics that you linked to...I don't really understand what I am looking. It's not my style and I think it looks very dated, in line with ex# 2 that you posted. I grew up in the late 80's and early 90's, and I wouldn't want to go back. But these are just my opinions. I wouldn't go out and start an entire thread about it.

Mostly because this is the type of work all magazines and media including tech media like wired or the verge seems to rely on these days. And we all know how the media is all about feminism metoo race baiting and extreme liberalism. They’ll hire these fresh grad feminist girls or some designers but not someone like me for having a diff style.
Nah, you're projecting your insecurities onto what you see in design. There's no inherent political correlation to good design. You say The Verge relies on work like this "bad design" example yet the first example you gave as "good design" is from a Verge article.
Also, none of the work you're showing here are examples of graphic design. They're illustrations.

That was one esample but literally The Verge, Wired, At,antic, New Yorker etc. are all using these feminine eccentric and exaggerated shapes now. All the people that seem to be making money doing graphic design for big publication or big media or popular sites like Ars Technica or Polygon seem to be these young women doing this exaggerated Illustrator pen tool crap with overly large body parts.

Again, you're projecting your insecurities, although now it's sexism, not politics. You're also still confusing illustration with graphic design.

No, you're the only one who's finding a correlation between "liberal media" and quality of illustrations. Again, what you keep calling graphic design is illustration. I'm not going to bother looking at your website, but the quality of your work you've shown here is not what I'd consider good work, and that has nothing to do with your political bias.

I like the art in that link you posted above quite a bit more than the examples you posted from your own site. The anger you seem to have toward women is concerning. I suggest talking to a mental health professional IRL.
