If you look closely, you'll see that these partisan political portraits by Veja Magazine depict more than meets the eye. With the tagline "Get both sides," the ads are decidedly anti-President George W. Bush.

Veja Magazine's Bush ads are a fascinating usage of graphic text. By shaping and curving the letters, channeling 1960s concert posters all the while, Veja Magazine has created an ad that also stands on its own as an art piece.

Implications - Typography is an important feature that is being more popularized through modern society. These art pieces represent images as well as strong hidden messages which appeal to a crowd of people that desire intelligent art. Corporations can benefit by creating art that appeals to this crowd that desires more substantial art.
