30 Reasons is a 30-day email and internet poster campaign encouraging voters to re-elect President Barack Obama. The first round of 30 Reasons debuted four years ago to great success. By election day in 2008, the website had over 100,000 views, and we emailed posters to hundreds of thousands more. But, better than that, President Obama won! (Okay, I guess we can’t take all of the credit.)
And now that we’re facing a crucial election again, we’ve revived 30 Reasons and asked 30 talented artists and designers to each create one poster describing their reason to reelect President Obama. In another year when the direction of this country seems so fragile, we are hoping that we can contribute with design in some measure. We all have the ability to speak up, to stand up, to impact the course of this country.
Vote to re-elect President Barack Obama on November 6th.
