Go Tell Mama! I’m for Obama
One of the hallmarks of the Obama movement was the range of contemporary grassroots expressions of support. Whether homemade t-shirts or Obama girls or even will.i.am’s “Yes We Can” on YouTube, the election made everyone feel like they could become part of the campaign, and many took up the challenge in a big way. Few more than Chicago graphic designer Ray Noland (aka CRO), who turned into something of a one-man propaganda machine, putting out posters around town (and around the country) notable both for their beauty and their message. Newcity even chose Noland’s work to illustrate our Obama endorsement issue.
