Sorry, Hillary Clinton: You’re not the only presidential candidate equipped with designer-made campaign tees.

Just yesterday, artist and activist Shepard Fairey revealed a new T-shirt design in support of Bernie Sanders—a pretty big endorsement considering Fairey was the man behind Barack Obama’s now-iconic “HOPE” poster for the 2008 election.

“Bernie Sanders is the real deal and I feel it’s important for me to voice my support for his bid for President. I think he’s the candidate who will look out for the interest of average Americans and the candidate who to me embodies the principles of justice, equality, liberty, and access to the American Dream,” the OBEY founder wrote on Instagram. “Bernie needs help from people like you and me and I think he’ll look out for the needs of people like you and me.”

As pointed out by WWD, the Sanders campaign announced the endorsement via Twitter last night.

The “union made” shirt is based off the graphic tee Fairey created for the Red Hot Chilli Peppers’ “Feel the Bern” concert earlier this month.
