The Obama logo was the flagship symbol of Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. The design became one of the most recognized political brand logos during the 2008 U.S. Presidential election, and was used again for Obama’s re-election campaign.
Obama and his symbol of Arrogance!
The logo was designed by Chicago-based Sender LLC (a brand development and design company) on assignment from Chicago-based mo/de (a motion design studio).
The latter had been brought on board early on by David Axelrod, Obama’s chief campaign strategist, although it had never done a political identity before. Creative director Sol Sender, now a partner at VSA Partners and founding director of the IBM Design Lab, led the design team of three which included Amanda Gentry and Andy Keene.

It is not a license to pursue personal agendas!
According to Webster:“fi·du·ci·ar·y,” (in context) Holding in trust for another.
According to Sol Sender, “The sun rising over the horizon evoked a new sense of hope.”
The design expression was so constrained and so bland for so many years in politics, Sender says…
“I think we had a fresh approach because we’d never worked on a campaign before,” and, of course, the power of the logo had a lot to do with “the power of the candidate’s message.
Of course, (in my opinion), both the power of Obama’s logo and the power of his message was due to the weakness of those that voted for him.
Come on now be honest, is there anyone out there reading this who truly believes that Barack Obama could accomplish anything on his own without smoke and mirrors?
