The Guardian: “Three Little Pigs”

Playing on recent uprisings aided by the prevalence of social media (e.g., Arab Spring, Occupy movements), BBH London, Director Ringan Ledwidge & The Mill help The Guardian extend the message of their transmutation from carbon to a digitally based, open-platform, crowd-sourced journal in this smart reinvention of the classic fairy tale. (Try telling this story to your kids before bedtime.)

The Guardian’s new campaign, “The Whole Picture,” recalls an earlier advert, “Points of View” (1986) and a previous retelling of the story (1996) from The Guardian’s archives. Also, check out their behind-the-scenes gallery.

Aside: As is the trend in all of news media, the storied newspaper is diving headfirst into the multimedia public pool, but one still has to question: Is the every-person really the future of big journalism? Are lifeguards necessary?  NPR’s Robert Krulwich wonders this very thing, and dissects the presentation nicely.  Read it here.
