Art and Politics: Barr
This is the most interesting button in the Barr collection. Bob Barr is running for the Libertarian Party. The line designs bring a nice attention to the words in the middle, although I think that the lines are a throw back to something like 70's British Op art. Once again, all caps, notice a trend. The Barr 08 words do something very different from the other buttons and that is that nice outline. Its right on the edge of campy, but I think it works. I like how the bottom text fits nicely under the "arr '08" part with the "B" being larger. It makes you think that the designer thought about how he/she was going to make the text fit the design.
