TAKEAWAY: While we labored over typographic styles, photo sizes and color palettes, the marketing department of the South China Morning Post worked right by our side for the past 8 months.  Anne Wong, marketing director, wanted to know every detail in the process before creating her campaign.  That campaign, Make Everyday Matter, has now accompanied us thru the relaunch and has enough power to become a brand statement for years to come.

Take a look at expression through type
