Dissecting the candidates' logos


***Design Geek Alert***

Here is a fun article which dissects the design of the candidates' type treatments / logo / branding (take your pick) :P

How many of us do this every time we see one? I do!! I love the fact that an article about this has been published in the mainstream media. It's certainly something I could anticipate seeing in a design magazine / web site / blog, but not necessarily in The Boston Globe... Go Globe!!

Wow, interesting. The one that stood out most to me right away was Obama's tag....sort of like Obama.

Interesting. I never really thought about the different styles of banners for the candidates, but I do notice them.

I am also letting you know that you have been tagged, if you want to play. http://nancyrosetta.blogspot.com/2008/02/7-random-facts.html
Love you!
