2016 Finalist

VGs 70th anniversary


Oslo, Norway

Category Brand Awareness Campaigns

Overview of this campaign

Our key goal was creating a communication concept that emphasized the importance of VG as a publishing house that has brought the news to the Norwegian people since 1945.
As a basis, we choose the 30 most important historical events over the last 70 years and reminded people of the role of the press, and especially VG, during major events. It was important for us that the campaign suited VGs brand as a provider of a wide range of news, sports and entertainment.
Our goals were:
· Make a story that people would love, one that would engage the public and create enthusiasm
· Match the public perception of VG
