How does a multi-million dollar campaign become a single symbol on a button? What informs the decision to wear a beige suit or knee-length dress to a formal dinner? This panel looks at the evolution and revitalization of campaign design – everything from the stage set and logo to the power suit and shoes – and how the current political climate informs the presentation of candidates and how these choices are stimulated with intellectual veracity and professional strength. On hand to talk about their first-hand experience are communications strategist Anne O'Hagan, political consultant Jean-Michel Picher and Bruce Mau Design's Hunter Tura.
