The first picture shows DUBONNET in its' most common appearance. The name is overwritten by another brand (Rochefort in the Home and
Garden section
), but we still discern the habitual type face. (Click the picture for the same mural with clear Dubonnet.)

The second picture shows a deviation from the common rule. The type isn't in 3D anymore. The colour choice changed dramatically from blue to red. The top-layer makes good use of the available wall space and uses contrasting colourblocks. The older layer features an all white background with the same type. The baseline deviates from the horizontal, but don't let you take away by cheap effects: the type is the same not italicized. See picture 6 for a non-blocked white on red mural.

The third picture is much higher level. The baseline is slanted, but the characters are in italics and thus don't seem to fall back as in the Chatellerault case. We recognise the trusted blue and white colours with 3D characters. Opposite corners of the canvas are filled with red triangles. Buy French it says. Without words, by using the colours of the French Flag.

The fourth picture sticks to the French colourset.
The advertisement is special because the brand is printed in lower case.

The fifth mural is a threefold repetition of probably the third picture theme. The brand changed colours again and comes now in lighter shades of blue. The 3D-shadows are ochreous instead of the usual black. If it wasn't for the quinquina, it could have been mineral water.

The last mural (7) shows the brand in its most bizarre appearance. A fancy type face with the ligature double 'N' and a new background colour. I wonder if it did any good.
