Barack Obama "Hope" poster

For my VCT essay, I have chosen the Barack Obama "Hope" poster which was designed by artist Shepard Fairey for the Barack Obama presidential campaign, 2008. The original poster Fairey designed had the word "Progress" on it, however after selling 700 copies the Obama campaign wanted to promote the theme of hope, so Fairey designed posters which had the word "Hope" or "Change".

In this video Shepard Fairey talks to Bill Whitaker about politics and pop culture.

This poster was made by Shepard Fairey in 2008 when Barack Obama won the presidential election and became President of the United States of America.
