Help Turkey campaign!

Erdogan's Stalinist style purge continues in Turkey: 125 000 dismissed from jobs and suspended, 40 000 arrested, 130 media services shut down, 15 universities closed, 14 000 students removed, an attempt to legalise child rape and now credible allegations of torture of prisoners. The biggest purge and human rights abuse in recent times.

Designed by Apple - the book

The best design school in Paris gets a new logotype and branding

Phases 3 & 4 of the design development of the school logotype and branding. Work produced in partnership with the internal communications team.

Blue white and red Primaries logotypes

After Trump, its Fillon in France who is the surprise candidat at the French Primaries elections for the Presidency. What about the three main candidates logos and communications? Sarkozy's red t was very poor, proved by his being ejected from the finals. Fillon and Juppe try for some dynamism. Fillon's F is very 'Formula 1' style, normal he is involved in the Le Mans race circuit and lives nearby. I'm impatient to see the Socialist candidates logotypes...

Trump design...! Just make it gold!

With only hours to go and with only 2 points between the candidates, what can we say about the Trump in design terms?
Oh my God, just look at his apartment... his tacky gold logos and the famously obscene Trump Pence penetration logo...!
