As a freelance designer, this is the time of year when projects start winding down. What seemed as a flurry of activity and contact a few months ago suddenly slows down to almost a crawl. It is that dreaded time of the year for a freelancer...the Holidays.
This highly publicized and scrutinized election season got me to thinking about a program that we did in the AIGA about 3 years ago. As part of a national-down-to-local-level campaign, many designers were asked to design posters whose message was to "Get Out the Vote". It's very interesting to see that the tone and imagery used for the posters then are still very much inline with what is going on today. Granted, it's only a few years later, but still extremely telling.
