New Yorkers love the wry “How New York Eats” campaign for Seamless, with its witty headlines digging into truths about the real NYC. Now, BBH New York is back with new ads for the food delivery service, an out-of-home, print and digital campaign that’s more about characters than headlines.
The new “Eaters of New York” campaign features an array of classic NYC characters illustrated by Emile Holmewood of design agency BloodBros. The campaign begins with a takeover of signage at Madison Square Garden, and will continue Oct. 11 with a five-page cover wrap on TimeOut New York.
The digital portion of the campaign includes the “Become a Character” contest. Instagram users are encouraged to upload a selfie tagged #HowNewYorkEatsContest for a chance to win a portrait of themselves illustrated in the style of the campaign.
