Obama 08 Logo Evolution and Development

What an interesting election.  I have to say as a designer that I loved seeing how good design played such a prominent role.  One of the McCain camp’s greatest failings was bad design.  They never were able to put out a good visual identity, starting with Optima as their logotype, which nowadays is used only on drugstore generic-branded products, and ending with a serif font that defies remembrance.

No doubt America has seen the power of good branding this year.
