Applied’s theory on voting tendencies for South Thanet
A telling set of political party symbols to put you on the right path before the election

Last month we were approached by Blueprint magazine to participate in a spoof ballot paper. The last issue before the general election, the magazine decided to poke some fun at the political parties vying to represent South Thanet.

Applied designer, Andy Bolton did us proud and came up with a rather excellent set of icons to portray the candidates and managed to represent Applied’s affinity for signage quite well. As mentioned in the letter from the editor, “just don’t let them sway your final decision!”
