Political Campaign Advertising, Technology & Design - Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Join us on November 8 at the CHK|Central Boathouse to hear from Lee Zelenak, Senior Designer for Barack Obama's presidential campaign.

Both the 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns were innovative for their use of technology and design. How did the 2016 campaign compare? Did these campaigns leverage the lessons learned? Can innovative advertising, design and branding survive in the political environment?

A year later, we look back at how these campaigns fared with their use of branding, technology and design. How we will move forward?
