Several of my friends on my Facebook are supporting Barack Obama, and I've seen a few of them rotating their profile pictures to the following image:
This is a great piece of graphic design, and I like the use of cream and cerulean blue instead of the basic Red, White, and Blue. It really channels FDR and the New Deal, which are two things I'd like to bring back to America--although it would be pretty hard to bring back FDR now.
But I had to wonder if Obama hired the same team to design his poster as did the folks over at ResistMeth.org. I saw their poster when it turned up at the start of the month at my T stop:
It started me thinking about how when you choose an image/brand for your campaign, you really need to look at everything and make sure to separate yourself from the pack. Obviously, I don't think Obama is doing meth, although I'm sure that will pull up some interesting hits from search engines. It was just something I've been crossing my mind every time I wait for the train. I wonder if they'll put up a new ad tomorrow, when the month switches over.
