Contributors include Stefan Sagmeister, Karen Collins, R.O. Blechman, Larry Fink, Jake Chessum, MC Paul Barman, and a housewife in Texas who created an embroidered “S”. Each of the participants reinterpreted one letter of the alphabet in a way that represents what Obama’s candidacy means to them. In all, more than 100 letters were created.
The project was spearheaded by Michael Ian Kaye, head of Mother Design, and the site was created by POKE New York.
“I’ve never been politically active before, but this election is far too important to remain on the sidelines,” said Michael Ian Kaye, head of Mother Design, who spearheaded the project. “We wanted to give Obama fans a fun, creative way to show their support and voice their own messages of change.”
Users can browse the alphabet and click on individual letters to learn more about the artist and the inspiration behind the design. You can also design and upload your own letters.
