New Political Pimp designs!

As the elections ramp up to full-throttle, we thought we should do our part as Americans, as designers, and as huxters to create art that adds to the whole spectacle. Several months ago, ADG’s founder, Joel Anderson started creating few political prints to encourage folks to cut through the spin and find out what each party is really selling. (The candidates and the media are always selling us something. They might talk about the economy, but WE are actually producing products that create jobs and stimulate the economy!) We even set up a new store section on our web site called Political Pimp to make our cheeky, inspiring and irreverent designs available to poster fans of all political stripes.

After Republican Mitt Romney picked running mate Paul Ryan, and President Obama decided to stick with Joe Biden, we knew that the stage was set for a few months of entertaining full-out smack-down campaign combat. We asked our intern Aaron Johnson (who will be a full-time staff designer soon) to contribute 2 sets of designs for the under-30 crowd. Aaron delivered with the devilishly funny roll-play-card-game-inspired Campaign Combat series and the hip, adorable 8-bit Multi-Player Melee series.

Then veteran staff artist Ligia Teodosiu came up with 2 prints that celebrate great presidents from each party. The quotes she selected for each of the presidents are inspiring and informative.

The whole series has turned out to be a lot of fun... we hope they get people thinking about the issues, our economy, and our nation’s future.

After we finished all of the poster concepts. Joel took the designs and created 3 collectible postcard sets:
• One set for Republicans,
• Another set for Democrats,
• And a third set for folks who are either undecided, or just want to own a copy of every design in this series.

All the prints are for sale on our site from now until the elections, and they will be featured on in a sale that runs from August 30th to September 3rd.

These ready-to-frame designs look great on the wall. Get yours while you can—these are limited edition prints, and they are already going fast!
