Created by Leo Burnett London, the latest UK campaign for McDonald’s features the fast food brand’s distinctive products have been presented in a stripped-back illustrative style. The use of the bold brand colours and infamous “M” make the adverts recognisable.
The simplicity is a look that we’ve come to expect from the brand, and which follows campaigns including its previous work for McDelivery and also its packaging redesign, introduced last year.
In this new campaign, the posters feature subtle location pins to emphasise the home delivery service, accompanied by simple text, stating ‘we deliver’.
The continued use of bold, elegant illustration certainly stands out in a sea of fast food brands. Unsurprisingly this is appealing to the creative teams working on the brand, according to ECD Mark Elwood.
“The iconicity of McDonald’s distinct brand assets built up over decades is unrivalled,” he expressed. “It’s proving catnip to our creative departments craft instincts, playing around with minimal branding to still deliver some truly iconic work.”
