From NY Times: The nameplate that has come to be the visual synonym of The Times was most recently redrawn in 1967 by the designer Edward Benguiat.

The New York Times joins the debate about the truth in minimalist ads from Droga5

Tue, Feb 28, 2017|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , , , |Comments Off on The New York Times joins the debate about the truth in minimalist ads from Droga5

From Adweek: In a world of fake news and alternative facts, The New York Times is asserting the primacy and importance of the truth—and the role independent journalists play in searching for it, and telling it—in a big new brand campaign from Droga5.

The campaign includes a 30-second spot that will air on the Academy Awards on Feb. 26 (where such ad slots are going for up to $2.5 million). The spot features audio of people debating politics, while on-screen text finishes the sentence “The truth is…” in various ways. · Go to The New York Times joins the debate about the truth in minimalist ads from Droga5 →
