The Economist new campaign - bringing back the visual.

AMV BBDO London has launched a new branding campaign for the economist, and with it they bring back the visual. And not just any visual,s they've gotten a hold of Paul Davis, Anthony Burrill and Design team Non Format (who did the "Balance" ad you see here) to lend a hand.

I love it, especially the "Balance" poster, my fave.

When I first saw this comment in the Recent Comments list, I thought that it said "You're old" (and nothing more).

I was wondering who found out! ;-->
