Handwriting = street cred

According to an article in Bloomberg Businessweek, the young, and out of work, who voted for President Obama in 2008 may not be running to cast their vote for him at the next election. However that doesn’t necessarily mean they will be voting for the opposition either. According to the article, only 47 percent of 18 to 29 year olds say they will definitely vote this year, down from 64% in 2008.

Take a look at the design of the supporting graphics. BBW’s designer lends an unusual visual perspective to the magazine’s frequently imaginative treatment of statistics. And the fading out of the photos suggests the young voter’s evaporating participation to the electorate, in a subtle but effective way.
