One of our client’s products, a building material, was selected for installation in the 1 World Trade Center building (which replaced the fallen World Trade Center towers in downtown Manhattan). This product was the only one in its category selected. You can bet we made that the centerpiece for a differentiating ad campaign that featured both emotional and rational creative appeals.
