Same mug shot, same expression, same white shirt, same blue sky background (or red depending on political leaning), same layout, same-ish typeface, same slogan: La France Forte, La France Solidaire, La France Libre, Le Changement c'est Maintenant... no creativity or originality in the campaign design.
An interesting comparison with Barak Obama's creative and graphic political posters here.

I will be running a design workshop at the Ecole de Design Nantes Atlantique. The workshop will analyse worst case packaging scenarios and address the paradigm with the best innovative packaging design solutions.
Exchange students from around the world: Australia, Taiwan, USA, UK, Poland, Korea etc will team with Nantes students in teams combining cultures and the disciplines of branding/graphic design and product/industrial design. Innovation, eco-conception, problem solving and creativity will be on display.
