Over the previous few weeks the electorate has been treated to several helpings of shameless self-promotive rubbish. From ribbons, to banners, to a tiny stall, to light bulbs, to safety jackets, we’ve seen it all (or, at least, that with which a limited budget can buy).
Our feelers were sent campus-wide to collect the best, and the worst, of the campaigning tools that chirpy slates and hapless candidates have employed to market themselves, with the eventual hope to secure our votes not by convincing us their policies are worth considering, but because they’re “really cool.”
QMSU Elections Graphics, actually quite good this year. After the theme of ‘puzzles’ last year, and a copyright rip-off tube map the year before.
