Art for Obama: Designing the Campaign for Change: Designing Manifest Hope and the Campaign for Change

by Jennifer Gross (Editor), Shepard Fairey (Author)

Synopsis

Few events in recent memory have captivated the world's attention like that of Barack Obama's historic presidential campaign. Not only did it stir passionate political momentum, but it also inspired the creative talents of a world of artists, illustrators, and graphic designers. The iconic Hope portrait from influential designer Shepard Fairey became the face of the campaign, and more than ever before, graphic design became a central theme for winning the race. Comprised of collages, paintings, photo composites, prints, and computer-generated pieces, Obama Art showcases the well-known images of the campaign as well as less famous, but equally creative, pieces from around the globe. Amassed and edited by the Director of Design for BarackObama.com, Scott Thomas, this is a volume for all design aficionados as well as supporters of the 44th President of the U.S. who want a keepsake as uncommon as his extraordinary campaign.
