Designing Obama

BY SCOTT THOMAS
@ VOL 2 ON JAN 30, 2010

When Scott Thomas first met Barack Obama in 2007, the junior senator's web presence was suffering from a lack of consistency; there were, as he says, "37 different typefaces", and, about "416 different colors of blue" could be found throughout the site. 

In his presentation, Scott takes us through the process of not only designing a political campaign, but changing the way politics are played in the 21st century.

He speaks on the power the web has to shrink our world; how far-away issues become our own when viewing and interacting with people across the country, around the globe. For the first time in American history we had a candidate addressing the people through live-streamed video rather than radio or television.

"Presentation of the Day" on February 22, 2013.
