When Barack Obama ran for U.S. president in both 2008 and 2012—beginning in his primary campaigns for that first nomination by the Democratic Party—artists (both professional and amateur) produced poster designs in support of his candidacy. Some were printed, and then sold on the Obama Web site; others were displayed on the Internet. (One Web site—Design for Obama—was started in 2008, was resurrected in 2012, and is still up and running, with some posters for sale at present.)
Now, on the Bernie 2016 Web site, a number of "volunteer' poster designs are being displayed in support of Bernie Sanders, who is seeking the Democratic Party's nomination in the primaries. Click here to see them. There is also a link on the site to "Women for Bernie created art."
The poster by Aled Lewis (seen to the right) was included in a post by the candidate, which supporters were urged to retweet.
