Designing the Biden-Harris campaign

Closing keynote, day 1

During the 2020 U.S. presidential election, the Biden-Harris design team designed everything from JoeBiden.com, to the campaign plane, to the stage design — all in one Figma file, all together. Robyn Kanner, Creative Director of the Biden-Harris design team, shares how they managed the pressure and speed of the historical digital-first election, through the lens of her personal reflections: on leaning into serenity, why letting go of ownership led to stronger communication, and the way it changed her own relationship with design.
