A campaign by Leo Burnett London

Building on the brands heritage of iconic out of home advertising, this latest instalment serves time relevant reminders of hero menu items such as the Sausage & Egg McMuffin, Big Mac and Fillet O Fish.

Created by Leo Burnett London, in collaboration with renowned typographer David Schwen, the eye-catching creative features ingredient stacks that are so recognisable, viewers of the work create their own association back to the McDonald’s products they are referencing.

Animated versions of each execution have also been created, using subtle motion to emphasise the characteristics of every ingredient within the stack.

The campaign aired on 27th January and runs across digital outdoor sites nationwide.

Peter Heyes, Creative Director at Leo Burnett, said“McDonald’s is a leader. Only a handful of global brands can communicate like this. The redacted and graphic nature of this latest campaign exudes the confidence McDonald’s and it’s iconic products deserve’.
