So, in 2008, Barack Obama had the best logo design that far out classes all his rivals designs. This year Obama has simplified the design and used the rising sun over a field image very effectively. After all, if it wasn't broke, don't fix it. I like that logo still, but I am little puzzled about the choice of text in the "2012." Seems a little too clunky of a text. Maybe the numbers are two broad and the 2's have that upturn on the bottom right that is a little distracting.
Diane von Furstenberg's totes are cute. I think it is great that a designer is making fun totes that are political, but informal.
