Did you think about the design and how much marketing went into persuading us to vote for a particular party?
Like me did you think how much did it cost to make that big old slab Ed Millibank was carrying around?
Ever wondered how much all this costs and where do these parties get the money from?
Well We take a look at some of the designs and marketing ploys used by today’s politicians to woo us, as well as elements broadcasters have used in the run up to May 7th 2015.
1. Battle Buses
Buses of all shapes and sizes from all colours of the political spectrum have be covered from top to bottom with large print vinyl and vehicle wraps. Even LBC Radio took to the road in their mobile broadcasting hub.
2. Stone Mmasonry – Ed’s Tablet/Tombstone

3. Good Old Billboards
This year there seems to be a cut back on good honest poster design! To me the I’ve seen better Photoshop skills on Instagram and Twitter. Or maybe that’s just it… they want to make them look amateurish to appeal to the likes of us! Who knows?!
4. Leafleting (aka Junk Mailing)
Thousands of Great British pounds must have been spent on designers and printers!
5. Election in Music
ITV News interestingly chose Kanye West’s Power for it’s trailer music, hinting towards a hung parliment or coalition??
