Report from Denver

Report from Denver

Attending a political party convention for the first time for any political junkie is an exciting and unpredictable experience. SPD being the non-partisan organization that it needs to be, I promised Emily I would stay away from politics, and only try to report compelling examples of graphics and design on display.

There were many interesting Shepard Fairey-like Obama products. Below are three selections, a likeness made up of words, a giant Robert Indiana-inspired "Hope" outside the Pepsi Center, and a mural of Fairey's cover for 5280 magazine.




Inside Invesco Field on Thursday, the "Obama / Biden" letters that were clearly designed to be on top of each other for buttons - with this particular tracking - looks funny side-by-side on the scoreboard. And why is this not in Gotham? But trust me, no one in that stadium cared.
