Keep the Far Right, Right Out

Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Art Direction / Art Direction for Poster Advertising / 2011

To combat growing support for racist, far right parties in the UK, we created a campaign encouraging people to think twice about whom to vote for in the upcoming General Election. Posters ran in the London area of Barking, where the British National Party was gathering support and was expected to win its first seat in Parliament. Executions consisted of graphic illustrations intended to create the look of modern day propaganda posters. Through the use of negative space, viewers saw graphic symbols of fascism such as the swastika emerge from innocent election imagery. We helped inflict a humiliating defeat on the BNP on election night.
