Pick of the Week: British Airways soars high with centenary campaign

The brand needed some heart.

What could so easily have ended up being yet another exercise in tiresome and superficial box-ticking is saved by some beautiful writing and artful filming, giving a brand that is sometimes difficult to love some much-needed heart. Following its brilliant World Cup print work from last summer, Ogilvy has rapidly found its stride with BA – not an easy task.

The work was created by Martha Riley, Andy Forrest and Nicola Wood, and directed by Tom Tagholm through Park Pictures.
