History of Graphic Design

March 1, 2012


The designer I was assigned was Shepard Fairey. He is most known for his Obama Hope poster he made during the 2008 Presidential election.  There was controversy over the poster because Fairey was criticized for failing to obtain permission and to provide attribution for the picture he used in the poster. In the end the charges were dropped and Fairey didn’t get in any trouble for the campaign poster.
