Egypt’s Election Logos

Colette for The Impossible Project, Egypt's election logos, airless tires and more in our look at the web this week

In its first election since Hosni Mubarak was deposed in February, a whopping 77 candidates are on the ballot, each with a logo. The sometimes seemingly non-sequitur graphics range from a soccer ball, dining chair and blender to a motorbike, water fountain, missile, ambulance and just about everything in between, including a pyramid. Perhaps working counter-productively to the goal of clarifying the process for inexperienced democratic voters, the system offers an interesting exercise in branding design.
