McDonalds "unbranded"

"The Big Mac, the Cheeseburger, the Sundae, the French fries, the Chicken McNuggets and the Filet-O-Fish… six products from McDonald’s that belong to the prestigious group of iconic products.
There is no need to name these products: you immediately recognize them.
Long speeches aren’t necessary: everyone knows what they taste like and what they stand for.
A logo would be redundant: you instantly understand who’s talking to you.

With this in mind, TBWAParis and McDonald’s decided to celebrate these iconic products as they deserved to be celebrated: by showing huge visuals in the press, in magazines as well as outdoor, without any kind of artifice. The brand isn’t mentioned anywhere on these visuals, not a single indication would add to the impact of the communication.
Because when a product speaks for itself, what more could we possibly say? But moreover, why should we say anything else?"

From Creative Review's newsfeed, 29th July 2013

This was a terrific project to work on with a great team.   Some very long days but we all had the same goal in mind and managed to develop quite a family spirit by the end of the week.   I even learned a bit more French - including some things I must most definitely not repeat by accident!

Here are a few "behind the scenes" shots.

Guess where the rice came in!
