Scott Thomas ‘Designing Obama’ Available For Pre Order
The Obama presidential campaign was innovative. For the first time in American politics, a candidate used art and design to bring together the American people—capturing their voices in a visual way. The Design Director of the Obama campaign, Scott Thomas, has collaborated with 100’s of artists and designers to create ‘Designing Obama’, a chronicle of the art from the historic campaign. Get the inside story on how design was used by the campaign, and scope out the pieces, created unofficially, by grassroots supporters. The 360-page book is full-color and hardbound, highly crafted with an embossed sleeve. Forewords written by Steven Heller and Michael Bierut. If you would like to order multiple copies please pledge the total for the quantity you desire and email HERE. The Obama campaign was successful because it was powered by small donations from supporters. We believe this is the right model for things other than political campaigns, so to fund the book, we’ve teamed with KICKSTARTER, whose mission it is to assist the funding of creative ideas and endeavors. We believe the Obama-like fundraising model is the perfect way to ensure the book’s integrity and quality. Support the project; fund its creation. Our goal is the amount needed for a minimum run. We will order as many books ordered. No overstock and wasted paper. We hope you support our approach.
