Recently, we launched a new brand, website and series of infographics for Terry McAuliffe's campaign for governor of Virginia. Since the 2012 campaign, we've set two goals: help political campaigns 1) embrace data visualization and 2) see the digital space as the origin of campaign creative. Terry's embrace of this approach has proven he's the type of forward-thinking, outside-the-box manager who can break the mold.
Here are some highlights from the campaign: Tablet-friendly websites. Compelling infographics to explain ideas. Animated brands. We believe that’s the future of political messaging.
For the rest of the infographics, go to Terry’s issues page - they are embedded into each issue.
Donate to Terry here. Remember who he’s running against.
Putting this video together for Congressman John Larson meant a lot to us. But I don’t think you have to be from Connecticut to see how connected John is with his roots and his district’s concerns. Like Karen says in the video: “It’s sincere, and it’s honest.”
Dear Illinois 10, Primary day is 2 weeks away. Let’s send Ilya Sheyman to Congress. He’s the only true progressive in the race - and someone I’ve never felt more proud of to work for.
Make no doubt about it - Ilya IS the future of the party. From Politico:
"A combative House primary in a northern Chicago suburb is being framed as a battle for the future of the Democratic party.
In one corner are national progressive groups, Howard Dean, Russ Feingold and The Nation magazine. In the other, are House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, the chair of the party’s recruiting effort, a slate of local and county elected officials and The Chicago Tribune.”
Whose side are you on?
"The blood of slaves reminds us that our pragmatism can sometimes be moral cowardice."
Today, we’re launching the website for State Rep. William Tong, who’s running for the U.S. Senate from Connecticut.
This is a campaign that means a lot to us. Not only is William impressive and raised more than $550,000 in his first quarter as an official candidate, he’s the current chair of the House Banking Committee and stands to be the first Asian-American elected to the U.S. Senate from the continental United States in 35 years.
Contribute to William’s campaign today and help us make history.

Avoid risky cuts to public services: tell Minnesota legislators to stand up for the middle class by taxing the richest 2%. Visit Tax the Richest for more information.
"There’s nothing serious about a plan that claims to reduce the deficit by spending a trillion dollars on tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires. There’s nothing courageous about asking for sacrifice from those who can least afford it and don’t have any clout on Capitol Hill. And this is not a vision of the America I know."
An incredible ad supporting Wisconsin public employees from Jim and Aaron. Easily ranks as one of the best pieces of work we’ve produced to date. Inspiring stuff.
I learned early from a school of political consultants to not put yourself out there that much. Focus on the clients. So if I do write something, it’s because I feel like it’s important and because I’m frankly pretty upset. Here’s my piece in the Boston Globe on how both parties used offensive Chinese-American stereotypes in attack ads against China.
My bottom line: Attacking China is fair game, using Chinese-American stereotypes to attack China is NOT fair game.
