The Economist 'where do you stand?' by Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO

Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO has created the final instalment in The Economist's 'Where do you stand' poster campaign, which presents an argument for and against a contentious issue.

The latest ads, which appear on London Underground stations, ask if hosting the Olympics is ‘a waste of money’ and if the baby-boomer generation has left a good or a rotten inheritance.

The creative directors on the ads were Mike Hannett and Dave Buchanan. Mike Sutherland was the copywriter, and Anthony Nelson was the art director for the Olympics ads. Colin Jones was the copywriter and art director for the baby boomers ad.
