“I volunteered my time because I believe in Barack Obama. One of his special qualities is his ability to listen as he inspires change. My image is an expression of this important dialogue with the American people. “OBAMA’08” is formed by outer energy, the red, white and blue of America. “OBAMA’08” is also the center that inspires the energy of an American environment of change.”
Over the past 5 decades Lance Wyman has helped to define the field of graphic design.
Born in New Jersey, USA in 1937, Wyman went on to study industrial design at Pratt Institute. In his final year he gravitated towards graphic design before working at General Motors in Detroit and then the George Nelson office in New York.
In 1966 he joined the Mexico ’68 Olympics Design Team, where he designed the logotype at the heart of the graphics system. Between 1966–1970 he designed some of the best known logos in Mexico, such as the Metro identity and icon system, World Cup 70, Camino Real, La Moderna, Vanity, Hysla and Peñoles among others.
After returning to New York, Wyman formed a partnership with Bill Cannan (Wyman & Cannan).
