Wolff Olins’ identity for cut-price airline Go will take centre stage in the client’s inaugural television ad campaign, due to launch on Monday. The four 30-second adverts for the British Airway subsidiary figure a cheeky animation of the identity. They have been created by advertising agency HHCL and Partners, with input from its in-house design team The White Room. ‘The Go identity is very clean and simple, just like the airline, so it was logical to include it in a large way. Meanwhile, we have tried to give the logo a human aspect to convey a feeling of innocence and make you smile,’ says The White Room head of design Simon Manchipp.
