Halloween Decorating with DPC

Decorating for Halloween can be a lot of fun. With such a wide range of options that fall under the “Halloween decor” umbrella, there is a lot of room for creativity. You can go with a theme that’s anywhere from fun-and-family-friendly to disturbingly-macabre.

In the spirit of the season, a few Denver Print Company graphic designers sat down to discuss and critique some designs from past presidential campaigns. Just as with any design project, the quality of the graphic design will not make or break a presidential campaign, but it can certainly either help or hurt. Good design projects confidence, while bad design can make a candidate look unprepared and unprofessional.

Design tastes and standards have changed over the years, of course. What was top notch in 1960, might look ridiculous today. Just as interesting as the design choices here, is the evolution […]
