They creators have a simple premise for this site: who are the people behind the McCain and Obama camps, and why should we care?
This site is incredible! I did some digging and found out that the designers who put this together (Lindsay Ballant and Ian Boyle) not only designed and built the site, but compiled and collected all the information themselves. This is true design-activism: design as a tool for information dissemination rather than a quick and provocative poster. Great work!
wow, pretty nice design, and good research!
POLITICS THREAD FFS!
Clear, concise but with a lot of information. I think it's a great format to compare and contrast the two candidadtes.
jesus. the commentary about each campaign member seems heavily weighted - each blurb about the blue side seems positive, and each blurb about the red side has a slight negative twist. design-wise, this site is good, and the idea is ace, but the execution - perhaps the biases of the creators unconsciously influenced their blurb-picking.
...the thing is pretty biased :(
to be fair - i'm an obama supporter, just like the creators, and for all i know, if i had put in the sweat and hours to build that site, it might have come out even more biased. so kudos where it's due.
nice work, there.
talk about last minute!
i look forward to when you's have made your votes over there.
maybe then there might be something different on our news over in the UK.
God I hate all-flash sites.
agreed, nice design, but the bias seems slanted towards the left side, which seems inappropriate for a site like this.
