Meg Jannott's latest project is to create branded graphic designs for each of the 44 Presidents of the United States. Presumably that means that she's going to give 2 designs to Cleveland. So far, she's up to Benjamin Harrison.
Here's Ulysses S. Grant. He earned the sobriquet "the Butcher" while in the Army for his willingness to accept huge casualties in order to destroy Confederate armies.

If one considers oneself an artist, it behooves that person to know his or her subject before attempting to create something about him, wether it be a painting, a sculpture, or in this case a logo. Ms. Jannott should return to the drawing board. Shealso should visit Grant Cottage on Mt. McGregor, Wilton, NY, where Grant finished his Personal Memoirs before dying of throat cancer. She will learn who the man trully was.
I'm sure Ms. Jannott appreciates your critique, as all good designers do. However, I'm simply pointing out that it behooves that a person to know his or her subject before attempting to critique them.
