Making a better Hosni Mubarak sign

Reuters photographer, Asmaa Waguih, took the top photo of Egyptian demonstrators. The sign shows how many U.S. Presidents there have been since Egyptian dictator, Hosni Mubarak, took power. I’ll offer a little design critique. Use the same photo of Mubarak for each representation. It will communicate the idea more quickly. I photoshopped the bottom image to show how much more impact it has. Using multiple photos of Mubarak offers the viewer the option to decipher the difference between each photo when the point of the sign is to show it’s exact same guy in every photo. Keep each photo exactly the same and the sign better speaks its point.
