AIGA 2008 Get Out The Vote

The AIGA 2008 Get Out The Vote campaign builds on the efforts made in 2000 and 2004, which placed more than 50,000 AIGA posters in public places in communities across the nation. Past campaigns provided public access to online PDF versions that anyone could print and post independently.

The template for the AIGA 2008 Get Out The Vote poster campaign is currently available online at: http://www.aiga.org/content.cfm/get-out-the-vote. Please submit your poster design by May 1, 2008 to be considered for one of the posters that will be printed and distributed.


GoMedia, one of my favorite design firms, has added a bunch of new work to their portfolio. If you haven't heard of these guys yet you most likely are def and don't have access to the interweb... which in that case you probably wouldn't be here. GoMedia also has an amazing blog and many other goodies (Arsenal). Go check out their site, and bring a napkin because you're sure to drool.
