Winner in the Manifest Hope Gallery contest. By Shawn Hazen from Chicago, IL: “This bold, graphic poster illustrates two of the most crucial themes of Obama’s campaign: Change (a change from the current administration’s reckless policies) and Unity, (the need for the country to take charge of this election and our country) through a literal “play on words.” It brings to life both ideas through typographic play: “Change” is created the word United actually changing as the letters progress down the print. Unity is created by the typographic progression that links the two words. The finished poster is 18″ x 24″. The image is roughly 13-3/16″ x 17-9/16″ on an 18″ x 24″ sheet.” Auctioned for $2,650.00
