The logo Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) selected for his 2016 presidential campaign has left some graphic designers baffled. Cruz unveiled the symbol on Monday when he announced his White House bid and immediately social media lit up with posts comparing the image to either a tear or an upside down burning flag. Others pointed out the similarity of Cruz's logo to the symbols for the Al Jazeera news service, the satiric Onion newspaper, and the flame representing the Tinder dating app. Artist Milton Glaser, the celebrated designer behind the "I ♥ NY" logo, expressed confusion at Cruz's messaging.
