The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age have unveiled a new brand and subscriber marketing campaign showcasing their breaking-news and agenda-setting journalism.
“You Deserve to Know” is a campaign that builds on their “Independent Always” ethos by highlighting cases of public-interest journalism where the Herald and The Age have led debate.
Issues covered include banking misconduct that resulted in the Hayne Royal Commission, mistreatment of elderly residents that led to the Aged Care Royal Commission, the Informer 3838 scandal that has led to this year’s Royal Commission into the Victoria Police, and reporting on Eddie Obeid that prompted an ICAC investigation and his subsequent imprisonment.
Nine’s managing director of publishing Chris Janz said: “The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age have broken countless important stories that have not only shaped the news agenda but created wider discussion and directly led to change.
“We are proud of what The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age have achieved and will continue to achieve, and think it’s important to highlight the value to readers and society that comes from the pursuit of the truth.
“‘Independent Always’ is part of the DNA of The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age. This new campaign is about demonstrating to our subscribers and readers what that philosophy looks like in practice”.
“You Deserve To Know” will run across print, digital display, outdoor, broadcast video on demand and social media, with the campaign pointing to a hub that highlights The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age’s public-interest journalism and gives audiences an insight into the processes behind the important stories they already know and the impact they’ve had.
The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age group executive editor James Chessell, said:”The Herald and The Age have a highly engaged, loyal audience and ‘You Deserve To Know’ is about connecting them further with our journalism and what happens as a consequence of the news-breaking the editorial team does daily.
“‘You Deserve To Know’ is the perfect platform for us to speak and connect with our readers at every part of the subscription journey, and to remind them that our journalism is for them”.
The campaign was created by the WiTH Collective, linked by Isobar in partnership with The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age subscription team.
Digital agency Slik brought the campaign to life on digital display and social channels.
The “You Deserve To Know” campaign sees the blue and red colour palette associated with The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age made more bold and striking to reflect the strong impact of their journalism.
