There's a lot of hubbub (sorry I had to use that word) going on over at the ABC news blog.


President Obama announced today that his administration will begin stamping an emblem on projects funded by the economic stimulus package so that people can easily recognize the effects of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

All projects will be stamped with the ARRA logo (short for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) and lists the recovery.gov website on the emblem.


Readers are questioning the validity of using "taxpayer money" to design this logo. Clearly, President Obama's team understands the role and power of design in communication. This is an effort to communicate. You can argue against his recovery plan, but at least THIS administration is doing their best to stay open and inform the American people.
