Art and graphic designers always have a field day during elections. Branding is not only for companies and products but politics as well.

From catchy one-liners to iconic logos, graphic design and branding has always been used in political strategies. Love it or hate it, that is just how it is. Politicians will find a way for people to remember them. Remember Barack Obama’s campaign logo? Or how about the Swastika Nazi logo during the second world war?

The PR people will always seek graphic designers during election periods. Branding experts cooperate in formulating a strategy to promote a politician’s brand of leadership to the prospective voters.

Designing does not end in elections along. It is also used during the period of governing as a tool to communicate community projects. There are many more ways on how graphic design and branding are used in politics. Find out more in these blog posts.

I recently had the privilege of working with Creative Repute to produce signage designs. The entire design process from start-to-finish was fantastic: the artist who worked with us was extremely responsive to our questions and needs every step of the way, and ultimately really helped us to turn our ideas and concepts into something beautiful. I could not be happier with the Creative Repute!

Nile worked with our nonprofit organization to design promotional material for multiple events. She turned projects around quickly and professionally, incorporated our feedback, and even took the time to show us how to alter templates of posters so we could update them ourselves! We’re so happy we got to work with her and will be contacting her for future jobs.

I can’t say enough good things about Nile Livingston and Creative Repute. They fulfilled a variety of graphic design and web support needs for a complex, year-long music project: design of a project logo, design of print and online advertising, design and support of a dedicated website, design of our concert program, and more. The CR team showed exceptional sensitivity and responsiveness to the historical and cultural intentions of the project, and worked attentively with us to express an aesthetic that embodies the project’s narrative. Nile has been available whenever we’ve called on her for advice, for problem-solving, or to explore a new assignment. They consistently met our agreed deadlines. As we bring the project to a close, CR’s work is part of what has made the project memorable and impactful.

It was such a pleasure working with Nile from Creative Repute! She created beautiful illustrations for a coalition project, captured our vision perfectly and delivered the finished projects quickly.
