[PR Exercise] Gordon Brown And The Kiddies

Posted by Lex Fear on May 11, 2007

Just checked out Gordon Brown‘s campaign website, prepared in advance (against the rules) by Silverfish.

Wow, amazing what can be achieved with Photoshop these days, I prefer The Gimp but each to his own…

Just for your ease, I have added 3 red spots to the image to point out areas they messed up.
