Ironic Sans: In a political campaign far, far away...

You'd have to have been there at the time, posters and stickers designed By Shepard Fairey changed the atmosphere surrounding the 2008 U.S. Presidential race. Maybe it was the power of simplicity, the power of a gentle but inspirational word, or maybe it was the masterful use of image making that made this poster as recognizable as the Che Guevara image which came before it, or maybe it was because the subject was of a leader that wasn't looking down on the people, anyway it was a poster that got my hart beating with the longing for positive change. Thank you Shepard Fairey for this.
