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.

Designing Obama

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 this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Champaign-Urbana Vol. 2), 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. The importance of making the campaign about "We" (as opposed to "Him") played a large part in empowering people to be proud of the candidate and issues they stood behind. Scott talks about designing signs that would be fitting for anyone to hold with dignity. And while it was necessary to use tools of the future, he speaks of "[pulling] imagery from the past ... and using it to display how truly historic this campaign truly was."

In "Protecting a Community, An Ecosystem" from PKN Vancouver Vol.28, hear Karen tell her story of trial and eventual triumph.
