007 – Political Design

Season 1, Ep. 7

What constitutes Political Design? How aware are we of the creative process and decisions at play in making a political campaign?

With the General Election imminent, Will and Alex are in good company; with Design critic, journalist and author Steven Heller, the graphic designer behind Hillary Clinton's ‘H' logo, Michael Bierut, and the creative behind the Green party's ‘Secret Life of 5 year old politicians' Dan Shute.
