Steven Heller Tackles Candidate’s Lapel Pins


Our friend Steven Heller is back on the trail with his latest entry on the NY Times‘ Campaign Stops blog. This time around, he’s talking lapel pins and all the trouble they cause when they aren’t worn. And like many of his Campaign Stops entries, he’s once again assembled a talented group of designers to come by and submit their interpretations of the lapel pin phenomenon. Our favorite was from painter and illustrator, Ray Bartkus, who figured out the easy way to deal with the debate: simply remove the lapels all together. Brilliant.
