FCB Inferno scoops Pearson literacy brief

The agency won the business after a competitive pitch. It has been briefed to create a global campaign to raise awareness of illiteracy and the benefits of literacy. The activity will launch in 2016.

Pearson launched the project this week by delivering a petition to the United Nations to urge world leaders to tackle illiteracy.

Emilie Colker, Pearson’s vice-president of brand and social impact, said: "FCB Inferno presented a series of ideas that we are confident will make an impact with both Project Literacy partners and the public to end illiteracy".
