English Translation of Main Headlines
Allan Gray is a South African investment company that has always focused on long-term investing.

We created a billboard in two different materials. An untreated sheet metal for the background, and brushed, stainless steel for the lettering. Then we let nature take its course. The sheet metal rusted in front of commuter’s eyes, as Cape Town went into its rainy season. While the lettering remained rust-proof and shiny, illustrating that if you think long term, you can prepare for it.

This site has become a space to watch for public and media. This execution garnered much interest and discussion.
