We've had a fantastic response to our call for poster ideas to fight the "Yes" campaign on AV - good designs, along with some clever slogans that put Tom Harris MP's hypocritical effort for the "Noes" in the shade. My feeling is that a strong and simple message is what's needed that draws on the deep well of anti-politics whilst showing why reform will be an improvement. This very striking black and white poster from the 1993 referendum in New Zealand is very effective in that respect I think.
Here are some of the best ones so far...
I'm a big fan of this with one its classy design and jaw-dropping stats:
Many of the designs highlight expenses linking it to a system that breeds arrogance and corruption among MPs:
I really like the slogan for this one, although I think the design is a bit too bright and cluttered:
The 50% support in a constituency argument is one of the most powerful arguments for AV according to polling:
This one's a great design, though perhaps a bit too obscure at first glance:
A bit of humour is always good:
And here we have a straight-forward reversal and correction of Mr Harris's effort to make it honest!
Thanks to everyone who has submitted ideas so far! Keep sending your ideas into [email protected] or post a link to them in the comments here.Take Back Parliament will announce a winning poster soon which will feature prominently in our grassroots campaigning.
