The Parallax Banner Ad

School: Miami Ad School


The problem with how the news reaches us today, is that its not usually our choice what we read. Tailored algorithms on social media platforms populate our feeds with news articles that only confirm what we already believe about the world. 

Nothing can really be done about what articles we see on our News Feeds, until The Times and Sunday Times found a loophole: Banner Ads, the one thing that follows us everywhere, regardless of social media's algorithms. And that's how The Times and Sunday Times challenge us to think again. Introducing The Parallax Banner Ad, an interactive banner ad whose algorithm processes the article you're reading and offers a Times headline on the same topic, but with a different view. These banner ads will appear next to articles from publications with strong leanings, offering a way out of our echo chambers.

This student campaign titled 'The Parallax Banner Ad' was published in United States in February, 2019. It was created for the brands: The Sunday Times and The Times, by ad school: Miami Ad School. This Digital medium campaign is related to the Media industry and contains 2 media assets. It was submitted almost 5 years ago by Creative Copywriter: Hatem El Akad of Miami Ad School San Francisco.
