Celtel Airport Billboard
While working as an Art Director at ZK McCann Advertising, Tanzania, I was asked to put together a "welcome" billboard for Celtel. The billboard was located right in front as you drove out of the Julius Nyerere International Airport in Tanzania, East Africa. Followed by another one at the Kilimanjaro International Airport. The lack of resources and specific talent was one challenge, but the entire project was due in 2 days. We were starting from scratch and it was after 5pm when they came to me with the brief. We had to find & hire models, I had to photograph, edit and put together the entire project. Working in Tanzania at that time was probably one of the most enjoyable experiences of my life. The saying "there's no hurry in Africa" definitely did not apply on this project.
