Apparently, one of the French presidential candidates needs to do a little better with his choice in graphic designers. In this article, the writer describes how the candidate’s website is based link for link on a funeral home’s website. The funeral home is a former client to the designer, who simply recycled pretty much everything but the names.
This seems to be a rookie mistake for not only the designer but also the candidate. It didn’t take long for the designing community to find out, and a mistake like this could truly cost the election. Also noticeable is the spelling and grammatical errors in the article itself, which raises questions about the new generation of journalism and professional integrity. That, however, is a blog post for a different day.
