CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y., June 23, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- JMR Graphics, a nationwide truck wraps manufacturer, comments on an article published by AdWeek discussing a new McDonald's billboard in France, which uses icons instead of pictures of food.
According to a May 22nd article from AdWeek titled, "McDonald's Unveils the Simplest Ads It's Ever Made," McDonald's has put up an incredibly minimalistic billboard in France featuring emoji-like icons in place of actual pictures of its food. Interestingly enough there is no branding at all in these ads. McDonald's is not mentioned in words anywhere on the ad, only a small logo appears.
The ad will appear in over 2,700 places throughout France and is supposed to show a new, unique and modern side to McDonald's advertising. The clean, simple drawings are eye catching.
TJ Panell, a representative from JMR Graphics, says, "This is a bold move by McDonald's to not brand their new campaign at all. Because McDonald's is such a widely known chain, it is very likely that someone will see these images and immediately associate them with McDonald's, along with the help of the small 'M' logo. However, I would always advise a company to brand their ads even further."
