A year or so ago, a group of graphic designers asked themselves how they could best use their skills and talents to help Barack Obama.

Anyway, the Design for Obama project is going to be a book from Taschen. Meanwhile, you can check out the website for all the submissions, or just dig this image I snapped in an alley just off the Bowery a while ago:
