Event Details

Sol Sender and Scott Thomas, creators of
the Obama logo and website, describe their
experiences in developing a political “brand”
of historical impact. This conversation will be
moderated by Alissa Walker, who has written
about design for Wired, Dwell, Metropolis, I.D.,
Design Observer, HOW and STEP inside
design. The Obama logo was created early in
2007 by Chicago firm Sender LLC, in partnership
with MODE. Barackobama.com was designed,
developed and managed by the campaign’s
internal team, led by Mr. Thomas.

The event features a special exhibition of
posters from Threadless Loves Democracy:
a challenge to design the most unique
and conceptual call to vote–sponsored by
Sappi Fine Paper, Threadless, Rock The Vote
and Jones Soda. The event will also
feature winning buttons from the McCoy
"Get Out the Vote" button competition on
24-7designheaven.com. A limited number
of buttons and posters will be available to
all guests.
