For the Runway to Win challenge, artists and designers from across the country sent in their best designs inspired by President Obama. The winner gets their design printed and sold in the official Obama campaign store. Among the competition’s finalists is Lydia Ricci of Narberth, PA.
Lydia, a mother and a self-employed graphic designer, didn’t hear about Runway to Win until the day all submissions were due, but was able to put together her great design in just a few hours.
“As a working mother I have very limited free time. I really want to support President Obama and this competition represented a great opportunity to do that. I work as a graphic designer, so this was right up my alley."
“The inspiration for my design was to keep it simple. I chose to only use black and white because that’s how I see the choice in this election. When you look at the facts it is very clear that President Obama is right. The letters slantupward because the President is moving the country that direction. He’s already done so much to improve things, and will continue to do more with a second term.”
If Lydia wins, we can't wait to buy a shirt with her design on it from the Obama store and wear it with pride. Show your Pennsylvania pride by casting a vote to support a local designer today by 6 p.m. ET. Let’s go Lydia!
