To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the “Timeless” Big Mac, TBWA Paris created a series of retro posters that do not even bear the iconic McDonald’s trademark.
Advertisers love everything vintage and retro. So much so, however, that it can feel out of place in contemporary campaigns. But this time, going retro does feel like the perfect choice for the latest McDonald’s campaign by TBWA\Paris.
You probably know it by now, this year marks the 50th anniversary of the Big Mac. The iconic sandwich has been the subject of many ads and campaigns this year, yet this recent one has won a special place in out hearts.
The new French poster campaign balances to perfection a minimalist approach and the overwhelming fashion trends of the past decades, from the 60s to the 80s. The result is a beautifully crafted campaign that perfectly conveys the Big Mac’s past.
One important detail is that TBWA\Paris felt like the Big Mac was enough of an icon for the posters to remain brandless. Yes, no logo, no brand name, not even the golden arches. Just the iconic Big Mac.
