Election posters you’ve never seen


If you can get past the election fatigue, take a few moments to look at these whimsical federal election campaign posters designed by graphic arts students at Université du Québec à Montréal. The posters are very clever, although you may need to draw on your high-school French to catch some of the nuance. The project was part of a third-year graphic-design class taught by Professor Nelu Wolfensohn, who’s done this for previous elections. Dr. Wolfensohn is also the director of the student-led Concepts for All project, an online image bank of visual concepts related to humanitarian causes and also well worth a look. Knowledge of French is not necessary for these latter images, as students were explicitly instructed to convey the messages visually, without words.
