Obama's New Approach To Campaign Finance - Xplanation by XPLANE

, (PressExposure) July 23, 2008 -- XPLANE, a global consulting and information design firm that clarifies the complex through visual communication, has developed an infographic detailing how Barack Obama is the first major candidate to decline participation in the public funding system because of the support he has garnered through online social networks.

Recognized for its visual communication pieces, XPLANE won a bronze medal in 2008 at the 16th Malofiej International Infographics Awards, which is known as the most important and respected infographic contest in the world. This marked XPLANE’s first time entering an infographic into the competition.

With an innovative, multidisciplinary methodology, XPLANE is unique because it focuses on visual thinking and information-driven communication to develop clarity, convey key messages to its clients’ target audiences, and generate the desired results faster and more efficiently. Companies have hired XPLANE to motivate employees, drive sales, convince decision makers and integrate with partners and vendors.

This piece represents just the latest in XPLANE’s work to promote conversation around important world issues. In 2007, the company produced the “Did You Know? 2.0? presentation with educator Karl Fisch to advance discussion on how to better educate today’s youth for a continually shifting world. Also, designed by XPLANE, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), published “A World Fit For Us”, an illustrated report for young people that details the state of, and progress around, some of the world’s most pressing issues through the personal stories of 19 youth. The report is UNICEF’s promised follow up to the more than 400 children from over 150 countries who participated in the United Nations Special Session on Children held in New York in May 2002 and expressed their visions for the future. The report is hoped to be an educational and empowerment tool for years to come.

“Images are a powerful tool for communication and learning,” said Wood. “XPLANE is committed to applying that tool in all areas needed — from driving business results for our clients to discussing world issues we believe need to be shared.”
