In Marion and Ann's words...

"This project has been thought out and designed in response to the 2019 D&AD New Blood Burger King brief, and led to us winning a Graphite Pencil Award at the New Blood Ceremony in July 2019.

"For this project, the challenge was to efficiently communicate with a young audience (16-24 years old) and show them that "the Whopper is not crap". We decided to base our campaign on fictional employees to find a fresh angle to demonstrate the Whopper's key attributes (fresh ingredients and preparation), to create an original campaign that would match Burger King's core values and tone of voice.

"This enabled us to bring humour and irony to appeal to the young audience we were trying to reach. We designed the main campaign to be divided into two posters that work in pairs so that the campaign would be memorable and catchy."
