The Association of Advertising Agencies of Nigeria, AAAN, on Tuesday, kicked off its golden jubilee celebration, even as the association unveiled the anniversary logo. The unveiling was first in the chain of activities lined up for the yearlong anniversary celebrations.
With the theme: 50 Years Young, Ready For More, AAAN President, Steve Babaeko, disclosed that the association would be rolling out the drums to celebrate five decades of excellence and dedication to the Nigerian marketing communications industry.
He added that AAAN would also be recognising and celebrating industry icons, past and present, whose efforts have contributed to making the Nigerian creative industry a force to reckon with, both locally and internationally.
According to him, “this milestone marks half a century of creative excellence and dedication to the advertising industry of Nigeria, and we are proud to celebrate with the unveiling of this logo. This logo, designed by one of our talented creative designers, Bashorun Olabayo, represents the growth and evolution of AAAN over the last 50 years. The bold and modern design represents our commitment to stay at the forefront of the industry, while the colours and imagery pay homage to our diverse culture and heritage.”
In his remarks, Director General of Advertising Regulatory Council of Nigeria, (ARCON), Dr. Olalekan Fadolapo, commended the association for overcoming several challenges over the years to achieve the remarkable milestone.
