Cossette and McDonald’s Follow the Arches All the Way to a Cannes Grand Prix

Cossette takes home the Grand Prix for Follow the Arches, an OOH campaign that went viral globally, in which McDonald’s iconic arches were de-constructed and transformed into directional billboards, meant to give consumers a nudge towards the brand’s nearest restaurant. Follow the Arches is an imaginative campaign that captures the truly iconic nature of the Golden Arches and creatively transforms the iconography into universally understood and playful signage that can be adapted globally.

“It is with great pride that we accept this shared recognition with McDonald’s Canada. The work that our teams across Canada produced together embodies the out-of-box thinking that we encourage. We are lucky to have the trust of the McDonald’s Canada team to allow for us to be as creative as possible,” shared Melanie Dunn, Global President and CEO of Cossette.

“Follow the Arches is a wonderful example of the brand equity we’ve built in the Golden Arches and our ability to create simple feel good moments in people’s daily lives. I’m so proud of the McDonald’s team and proud to have a more than 40 year partner in Cossette. We look forward to many more exciting campaigns to come,” added Antoinette Benoit, Chief Marketing Office of McDonald’s Canada. 

Cossette also took home 7 bronze lions and 2 silver lions for campaigns for SickKids, Humanity & Inclusion, VIA RAil and McDonald's.
Congratulations to all the hard work that Cossette’s teams from coast to coast put in everyday. These awards are a recognition of their collaboration and spectacular work.

In it’s 65th year, Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity is a seven day festival bringing the world’s most inventive, talented and creative people in the communications industry together in Cannes to learn, network and celebrate.
