The Margaret Thatcher Marmite mock-up product design is sure to divide opinion, just like the Iron Lady herself. The political career of the late former British PM was shrouded in controversy, so it makes sense that The Guardian newspaper team chose a ‘love it, or hate it’ condiment, Marmite to promote their coverage on Thatcher’s life.

Thatcher was a politician whose reign divided opinion and was fraught with controversy. Thatcher’s funeral took place in London this week and was snubbed by many international politicians. London based design agency BBH came up with the striking and perfectly fitting design to promote Guardian cartoonist Posy Simmond’s look back at Thatcher’s life.

This design is a shrewd move from the BBH team, and one that's sure to get people talking.
