1759 Celebrates 1957

Agency: Ogilvy


We brought Ghana’s symbol and fabric storytelling legacy into label design. We selected 62 icons and symbols that represent different aspects of Ghanaian culture and history. Then we weaved them together to create a contemporary, fabric-like pattern for the Guinness label, which not only told Ghana’s story, but also literally and figuratively put Guinness at the heart of Ghana’s 62nd Independence celebrations.

This professional campaign titled '1759 Celebrates 1957' was published in Ghana in March, 2019. It was created for the brand: Guinness, by ad agency: Ogilvy. This Design medium campaign is related to the Alcoholic Drinks industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted almost 5 years ago.
