Poster boy Shephard Fairey really hit the big time when his Obama print was picked up by the Obama Presidential Campaign last year. Having subsequently designed the official Inaugural Poster for Obama, he looks well positioned to become the go-to guy for reshaping how we visualize the White House (and Harlem).
If posters aren’t your thing, take comfort in knowing that Fairey has also dipped his feet into the presidential souvenir pool with a set of commemorative plates. Available in red or blue, and produced in a limited edition of 500 each, the plates feature Obama’s visage at center with a border of slogans culled from last year’s campaign. The plates can be purchased individually for $89, or as a set of two (one of each color) for $178, from The Future Perfect.
