It’s campaign silly season again, and we’re about to see a massive deforestation effort to provide endless piles of junk mail, doorhangers, window signs and the like all over Our Fair City. Having worked in this business for some time, one thing I find interesting is the amazing graphic design (or total lack thereof) in these things.
In the past, I’ve scanned in mail pieces and done some critiquing (which you can find to your left in the Categories section). I may do some of that this year too. Today, however I’m asking readers – which of the many candidates’ window signs do you find look the best, design-wise, regardless of whether you support them or not?
I have some thoughts, and I’ve mentioned a little before about those awful Run Ed Run design abortions (complete with ironic captions), and about the politics of black and orange. However, add your thoughts in the comments below. Remember, this is all about design only – not about the candidates themselves (that’s another column).
