Design for Obama free pdf This book features the poster art of the Obama '08 electoral campaign. The graphic innovation that helped make history. Hundreds of pro-Obama posters appeared on, a website for artists and designers wanting to support his candidacy. This selection of the very best, by renowned artists and up-and-comers, is an important social document of the most inspirational campaign in living history. From its inception, the Barack Obama campaign was destined to make history. Its message of inclusion and empowerment was spread by thousands of volunteers, drawn together by a grassroots organization of unprecedented size and enthusiasm. Design for Obama built on this spirit by creating an online forum where artists, designers, and advocates could upload their artworks and download others, all for free. Shepard Fairey's social realist "Hope" poster became 2008's enduring image, inspiring scores of artists to take their designs to the streets, rallies and registration drives, and homes and in offices around the country. Edited by founder and graphic designer Aaron Perry-Zucker and filmmaker, author, and activist Spike Lee, this collection showcases the 250 best posters. Contributors range from prominent graphic and street artists to young up-and-comers. With essays by Spike Lee, Perry-Zucker, and design historian Steven Heller, this outstanding poster collection serves as a matchless historical document of the most innovative and inspirational electoral campaign in living history, and the widespread visual creativity that helped spur Obama to victory.
