"Art of the Union" is my personal blog where I write about politics and history in a fun yet informative manner. Originally the blog was located on Tumblr, but was turned into its own website to appear more professional. The key was to have the design and graphics of the site match the style of writing. This is not a news website like CNN or Politico, so a plain white design would not suffice. The design approach was heavily influenced by WW2 style advertisements, a fun balance to the new digital medium. View the full site at artotunion.com.
