The Residue of Design

I'm not sure what it is, but the Obama campaign is sure nuts about creating graphic designs. They floated the mock presidential seal earlier in the campaign, only to have it hooted down pretty quickly for a variety of reasons.

Now, they are floating this odd "Buy American" logo that is vaguely like logos for '70s rock bands, hockey teams, more '70s rock bands, motorcycle manufacturers and bygone gas stations.

Does any of this make you feel better about the Obama campaign? Or does it seem somewhat creepy? I am looking forward to seeing the inevitable Obama corn art at the State Fair.

i get the feeling that if O is elected, there will a persoanlity cult surrounding him on the likes of stalin and mao, and the attempts to create a living superhero in the minds of the populace.

its getting close to that now, with any slight criticism being shouted down as racist,mean, ignorant... etc. this man is above reproach, after all.
