May 9, 2015 • Company News, Creative

NEW YORK, May 8, 2015—Getty Images, the global leader in visual communication, has unveiled a new advertising campaign in celebration of its 20th anniversary. Created by Brazilian agency AlmapBBDO, the campaign shows the changing face of high profile personalities over the past 20 years, featuring former U.S. president Bill Clinton, tennis player Serena Williams, actress Scarlett Johansson and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge.

AlmapBBDO dove into Getty Images’ award-winning library of over 170 million images to curate this unique visual timeline portraying 20 years of change. The images are arranged chronologically, allowing the viewer to follow the transformation of each personality over the years. Each personality selected has a large number of images in the Getty Images library – for example, there are over 32,000 images of Clinton.

Andrew Saunders, Senior Vice President, Creative Content, Getty Images commented: “The world has experienced a phenomenal 20 years and Getty Images has been there to capture every moment that has defined the world over this period. For us, showcasing the development of well-known personalities allows us to see the changes they have been through, but also shows us how far we have come as a brand. We look forward to the response from the creative community at Cannes Lions!”

“The idea of portraying 20 years of Getty Images through images of well-known personalities gave us the opportunity to not only follow the changes they have been through, but also creatively envision what happened in the world during this period, with the certainty that Getty Images was present at every significant event and moment throughout the last two decades,” said Renata Simões, Marketing and Content Manager at Getty Images, Brazil.

The campaign highlights Getty Images’ continued leadership in visual communications, its quality content and the sheer breadth and depth of its archive, as it celebrates its significant 20th anniversary milestone.
