Describe the challenges and key objectives
The execution should use non-traditional advertising to create a modern, interesting image of CNN International. The basic media idea was to launch an outdoor/ambient campaign that took advantage of the ultimate "Go beyond borders" event in history: the fall of the Berlin Wall. The anniversary event was highly befitting for CNN's new slogan.

Describe the brief from the client
The task was to introduce CNN's new slogan "Go beyond borders" to the public. The idea should get people talking and understand CNN's new positioning. And by doing so reach people beyond the classic CNN target group.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
'The core medium: 40 kilometres of adhesive tape marking the former border between East and West Berlin. The tape was used as a carrier for CNN's message and was highly visible to the scores of international visitors who came to the city for this special event. Along the red line, the tape artist EL BOCHO depicted places and images that people would remember. Information panels informed people about what was going on. The integrated QR codes invited people to share their own thoughts and experiences. The production was also accessible to an international audience via Google Maps.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
- CNN's new slogan was communicated to over 2 million people on the streets during the Anniversary celebrations - CNN International begins dialogue with new audiences - never reached before by traditional marketing.
