Leading paint brand Valspar and creative agency FCB Inferno are hitting the road during this defining week in British politics to bring the nation’s feelings and opinions to life using the power of colour.
An ‘election convoy’ hits the road today in London and Manchester. Three digital display vans, stretching an impressive 54ft, will take to the city streets – using Valspar’s fun and unique paint names in the appropriate party colours and opinionated prose, as inspiration for people’s voting decision.
The extensive paint range which includes 2,000 colours, each inspired by everyday objects, situations and states of mind, are now also colourfully narrating the polarised mood of the nation. Pinterest boards also reveal how the wanna-be PMs may plan to makeover Downing Street – bringing to life what the interior of No. 10 may look like under the influence of the new (or remaining) resident come Friday morning.
