Graphic Design in Party Politics

Join American graphic designer and partner at Pentagram, Michael Bierut for a talk on graphic design in mainstream politics.

What to expect

Design has played a critical role in shaping the major elections of the last few years (Brexit, Trump, Cataluña etc.). From campaign billboards, placards and cartoons, to logos, t-shirts and now animated gifs, visual communication is transforming political campaigns and having a profound impact on voting.

American graphic designer Michael Bierut - designer of Hillary Clinton's US presidential campaign logo - will discuss diverse design strategies used by mainstream political parties to communicate messages and motivate action.

This event is part of a series of talks delivered in partnership with the Guardian.
