Golden Gate Bridge’s 75th Anniversary
May 27th, 2012 marked the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge’s 75th anniversary. Goodby Silverstein & Partners, an ad agency founded in San Francisco, has had a long-standing relationship with the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy.
Rich Silverstein served for fifteen years on the board of the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, where he helped make them into a brand that is the envy of our country’s park system.
For the bridge’s 75th anniversary, we challenged ourselves to have people see the bridge, one of the most photographed and iconic American symbols, in a way they never had before.
GS&P’s photographer and senior art director, Claude Shade, was granted access to areas of the bridge that are otherwise strictly off-limits. The shots offer never-before-seen angles of the Bridge’s classic art deco architecture. The photos were then doctored to stay in-theme with the iconic bold “international orange” color and color blocking aesthetic Rich Silverstein made famous in our previous print work.
