Graphics and Other Stuff for Doug Mann's Mayoral Campaign
Going back to the graphics side of things, and some analysis overall:
Policy & Announcement Posters
Notes: These policy and announcement posters were uploaded to the 'Doug Mann for Geelong Mayor' Facebook page over the course of the campaign and were constructed based on Doug's policy statements, and therefore each run on different themes. For example, using imagery of a cat and dog to represent support for animal rights.
For the poster representing Independence, I chose to have three thin arrows together pointing down due to the fact that elected representatives often find themselves being dragged down by their backers (and there were many MANY candidates backed by various business interest groups and political parties who didn't declare it); and a big green arrow pointing upwards to signal not being dragged down by anyone and moving forward, as Doug Mann was not backed major political party or other related organisation.
I tried to keep these posters simple by using silhouette imagery and an overall abstract theme. I also emphasised positivity.

Photos on the Campaign Trail
Notes: The top image was intended to put a face to a quote that had been said by Doug Mann; which up until this point, hadn't been accomplished for the social media side of the campaign. It was taken at the Geelong Advertiser Mayoral Debate. The bottom three images were taken out and about on the campaign trail.
There were plenty more photo ops, however I unfortunately didn't have my camera with me on those occasions.
