Donald Trump's mugshot NFTs may be the year's biggest design crime

NFTs were so 2022, but some have persevered despite the bubble bursting. And the former US president Donald Trump is among them. Following the 'amazing success' (I'm imagining Trump's own take on it here) of two initial series of badly photoshopped Trump digital trading cards, we're being treated to another drop. And, almost impossibly, the new Trump NFTs are even worse than the previous designs.

Billed as a special 'mugshot edition', the cards feature images of the former president as a cyborg, a samurai warrior, dethroning Abraham Lincoln on the Lincoln memorial, throwing lightning bolts and and breaking the shackles that bind him. "Enjoy the art," the initiative's official X account says.
