Back in ’04 there was a fascinating article in the New York Times called “What You See Is What You Get” comparing the logos of John Kerry and George W. Bush (make sure you click on the article graphic) . Since that article, I’ve been convinced the Bush won the election only because his logo had a better design (sending a stronger message). For the current election I love seeing how design and technology are being used to help get (especially young) people involved and interested in the election. The graphic above is from Facebook who has teamed up with ABC for election coverage and getting the word out. I’m definitely a fan of the simple graphics that Facebook has created and keeps updating to keep its users updated about news and events regarding the election.
