The illustrator Patrick Moberg sums it up eloquently:
The obama campaign inspired millions of people to vote and they also inspired milions of artists to share their vision of Hope (or in this case Obama). The list is endless, here are just a few examples/links.
Or the website Design for Obama, with many amazing posters to date.
And of course not to forget Will.I.Am´s song Yes we can.
And the campaign itself was pobably the best designed ever. Here is a neat post by london graphic designer Ben Terrett with a collection of some nice articles which analyze this phenomenom. Among it a great photo gallery by the Guardian, 30 graphic designers giving 30 reasons for voting Obama and this great article< at Speak up.
They branded his posters, pins, stickers, plane, bus…and even christmas ornaments…the variations are endless.
Ah, and the typography! Gotham. *Sigh*
Here is a good article by the Boston Globe about this particular phenomenon of the phenomenon.

I found this right on time for the long easter weekend it seems.
A faboulus website to “waste” away the next couple of days (or more). ffffound is an image bookmarking website. You have to be invited by a member to be allowed to blog, but viewing them is for free. Images range from photography to graphic design, art, advertising, street art, vintage posters etc. From beautiful, enchanting and strange to dark and gloomy. Basically everything that catches the bloggers eye.
A really great source for inspiration.
Happy easter 🙂
