Obama Campaign Logo

Two different newspaper articles here and here involve interviews with the original graphic designer of the Obama 2008 campaign. Sadly, the designer himself has yet to meet the President-elect.

I always felt the Obama 2008 campaign logo was strong and highly symbolic, but the precise colors seemed a bit off to me, as if the blue and red hues chosen were not dark or rich enough for my taste. It seemed that the animated version of the logo (which can be seen at the end of every official campaign video) used darker colors, but the static logo seemed lighter. 

No matter, the highly recognizable logo played its part in the victory of Obama's historic campaign.
