Designing Obama


Would you like to own a record of the most successful grassroots campaign in presidential election history? A sprawling collection of art from the historic campaign, "Designing Obama" features over one hundred artists whose works contributed to a nationwide branding effort that helped inspire a nation.

With collaboration from Scott Thomas, the Design Director for the Obama campaign, and featuring forewords by Steven Heller and Michael Beirut, the 360-page, hardbound full-color book is being printed on demand. Like the Obama campaign itself, publication of "Designing Obama" rests upon the contributions of its supporters. The team joined funding platform KickStarter, to collect pre-order donations in hopes that the book will meet its minimum print run, a $65,000 goal. Judging by the initial response since the site launched yesterday, the book looks to be a shoe-in.

Follow the progress and making of the book on Twitter, and pre-order a standard copy for $50 from Kickstarter.
