Design For Obama: The Website and Book

did_the_thingI’ve written about “Brand Obama” previously; now, here’s a huge installment. RISD grad Aaron Perry-Zucker hoisted a website called Design for Obama, where artists up- and downloaded Obama poster designs during and after the election.

The hundreds of submissions (including “Did The Right Thing,” sent by Don Button days after the election) caught the attention of filmmaker Spike Lee. Lee got involved in publishing a book of 200 designs, selected and edited by Aaron and Spike.

Design for Obama: Posters for Change/A Grassroots Anthology is set for release November 4, 2009, on the year anniversary of President Obama’s historic victory.
