SimpleScott (aka Scott Thomas): Design Director for the Obama Presidential Campaign
Prior to his successful Obama campaign, Thomas and five other creative types began a design collective, known as The Post Family. The group devoted to supporting “family” member’s design habits – from silkscreen to letterpress, from illustration to blogging – in an effort to “get back to the hand.” In 2007, Scott Thomas’ career took a turn when he… was invited to join the Media Team at Obama for America, where he became the Design Director of the historic Obama Presidential campaign. Recently, Thomas, who collaborated with artists and designers, finished a book about the Obama Presidential campaign and how for the first time in American politics, a candidate used art and design to bring together the American people–capturing their voices in a visual way. The book, Designing Obama: a Chronicle of the Art and Design from the Historic Campaign, has information on how design was used by the campaign and became successful because of grassroots supporters. After the lecture, Scott Thomas will answer questions from the audience and sign books. For more information on SimpleScott, please visit http://www.simplescott.com/.
