In The Politics of Type from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 15, partner of Buffalo-based P22 Type Foundry, Inc., Carima El-Bahairy breaks down the relationship between political campaign typography and campaign results. From Abraham Lincoln to Richard Nixon to Barack Obama to the 2016 Presidential Candidates, El-Bahairy presents an analysis of the effectiveness of various graphic identities employed on campaign buttons, bumper stickers and logos.
