Design Action was busy this past election cycle supporting a number of grassroots organizations doing groundbreaking electoral work. Some turned out progressive student voters. Some exposed corporate campaign contributions. And many did door-to-door organizing, building voter blocs — on a local and state-wide level — made up of progressive working-class people of color, who now form a majority in most of the nation. Through these strategic campaigns, launched during this major demographic shift, a number of our clients were able to win significant victories, such as winning decisive votes for Obama in both Florida and Virginia, and winning highly contested local races securing progressive political power in both San Francisco and Oakland, CA. We are proud of the victories that each of these organizations fought hard for, and won, this election cycle, and were honored for the opportunity to work with them. Here’s a sampling of some of the work we did…
Florida New Majority
We designed and developed new websites for Florida New Majority and Florida New Majority Education Fund who protected the right to vote and mobilized tens of thousands of working-class people of color voters across the state. See article.
Virginia New Majority
We designed and developed a website, blog, and campaign micro-site, along with a bunch of print materials for Virginia New Majority and Virginia New Majority Education Fund, who protected the right to vote and mobilized tens of thousands of working-class people of color voters across the state. See article.
San Francisco Rising
We designed and developed a new website for San Francisco Rising, and will soon be launching another site for their Action Fund. We also designed slate cards for them. They were able to win a number of decisive victories. See article.
Oakland Rising Action
We did print work for Oakland Rising’s Action Fund, who also had some powerful victories.
University of California Student Association
We did print design work for UCSA’s “Get Out the Vote” work.
