Design for Obama: The TASCHEN Book – Follow-up #4

Steven Heller, co-chair of the School of Visual Arts’ MFA Designer as Author Program, writes the “Visuals” column for the New York Times Book Review, and is the author of 120 books on design, illustration, and satiric art – including TASCHEN’s Design For Obama which features my own original English-French-Hebrew design on page 95. The book will be available worldwide in two weeks, so in the meantime you can check out Heller’s discussion with the Philadelphia chapter of AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts) on the outpouring of posters for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. Heller also compares today’s political graphics to the campaign posters of a previous generation, and the relationship between democracy and design.
