It's Official... Sept, 20 2007 CRO was commissioned by the Obama campaign to design an official poster for its up-coming NYC rally. The rally looks to be building as one of the largest Obama rallys to date. Be on the look-out for promotion and posters around the city. They Once Said July, 31 2007 Our fifth video in the series. We created this for MSNBC's Hardball Campaign Ad Challenge contest that doesn't really seem to be a 'real' contest. I guess if it's not made with powerpoint, an attack ad or straight-up T&A, it's not worth showing.
