‘Viva La Revolucion!’ Obama Campaign Rolls Out New Typeface Inspired By…

 

The Obama Campaign rolled out some new fonts on the campaign last week.  The typeface chosen for the word ‘America’ was starkly different that anything we had seen before. Buzzfeed’s Zeke Miller reported that the font was named “Revolution Gothic” and that according to myfonts.com the typeface origin is seeded in Cuban Communist propaganda.

“The original font is inspired by retro propaganda posters and wallpaintings in Cuba from the 60s to 80s.”

We did some research here at the Blaze to see how true this really was.  Here is a collection of early Commie propaganda from Cuba and later pop-art , can you see the similarity?
