The Wall Street Journey

on March 14, 2007 by Martina Comments

The Wall Street Journal is online with a very nice campaign to drive subscriptions. They play with the concept “Life is a journey”, picturing the life of nice celebrities, and at the end of the path they add the tagline “Every journey needs a Journal”. The site is simple and clean as you expect a WSJ campaign to be, but it’s also very powerful and meaningful in presenting the concept. Photography, illustration and typefaces are perfectly combined to support the storytelling. The call to action maybe it’s a bit hidden, but probably this is a choice to be in line with the newspaper communication approach. In the end, even if selling is selling, this is the WSJ, not a supermarket Congrats to T3 for the great work.

WSJ: don’t take things too seriously, please!

on July 15, 2003 by adverblog Comments

I just received a protional email from the Wall Street Journal. The title of the message was: From the President of the Wall Street Journal Online … This title sounded kind of scary to me… or maybe I perceived it as funny. I’m not sure. Anyhow I think it’s an high-sounding way of addressing people. Ok, you wanted people to immediately understand that wasn’t spam, but please don’t make it sound like an heavy statement, don’t take yourself too seriously. In medio stat virtus.
