o8 Congratulations by James White

Download the hi-res print file, 11 x 17 poster, 300 dpi tiff (17.3 mb)

Edit: I made a few changes to the overall design and re-uploaded the poster file. Sorry for the inconvenience, but feel free to download the new version.


  1. geoff

    nice, well done USA!

  2. Cleve

    well played. Very cool.

  3. Guido Schetters

    you congratulate the french?

  4. very nice. I think I may have to get this printed on archival paper.

  5. Robert

    I think I have to agree with Guido on this one. It does read as French flag (horizontally flipped). Nice image nonetheless.

    Guido and Robert, good point. I was trying to keep it simple with the stark red, white and blue, free of any icons like stars, eagles etc. I certainly understand your notes on the inverted french flag, much appreciated feedback.

  7. Stan

    Oh please make this available as a signed print! Beautiful piece for a beautiful event.

  8. Cleve

    …off topic and I apoligize – do you ever take requests for a theme of idea?

  9. Joe

    Although I’m glad O won when I saw the campaign funding between the two my stomach started to hurt.

    Obama – $350 Million spent
    McCain – $85 Million spent

    Nice poster!

    James, we’re so tired of your shit. It’s the same old thing over and over again…
    Why don’t you get real? Do you think that doing the same thing over and over will set up you style signature?


  11. Joe

    Uh oh! Jealous person alert! Drink a bottle of hater-ade today Juliana?

  12. i like the new version..good one james..always like ur work.

    Juliana, I have always created art that I enjoy creating with no greater motive then that. The internet is a big place, so with due respect why not go find something you enjoy?

  14. lau

    Sacré français ! ;-)

    Juliana : o_0 maybe you can go in another place to find something you like ? no ?

  15. James, I like this version a lot better. I think it really defines a win for democracy and for Obama. And that’s coming from a McCain supporter.

    Love your style and art, keep doing what ya love man.

  16. james (Author)

    Much appreciated, Shad. Thanks a lot for the kind words.

  17. I don’t think it looks like France. I mean then it could look like Netherlands rotated 90 degrees. Anyway, good job, and hope things straighten up for you Americans;)!

  18. James, I absolutely love it. The positive thoughts from around the world are much appreciated.

  19. James, your work never ceases to amaze. Even in this election cycle where design was a dollar a dozen, there were clearly some standouts like Shepherd Fairey’s iconic design and Scott Hansen’s image.

    I tried my own take at a congratulatory poster as well. I’d love to hear from you and the rest of the community what you think…

  21. Kid

    Ive seen these for sale on ebay.

    Kid, you’ve seen my poster design on ebay? I did a search and couldn’t track it down. You wouldn’t know the URL, would you?

  23. Kid

    Heres the link http://cgi.ebay.com/RARE-Barack-Obama-24×36-OBEY-FAIREY-Progress-Poster_W0QQitemZ200292960901QQcmdZViewItemQQptZArt_Prints?hash=item200292960901&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1205%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A0%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50

    I thought this looked familiar, also I see you supply the HiRes download for free. So by someone else printing this then selling the print wouldnt really be a crime …..then of course a moral issue might be another question.
