NZ Earthquake Commission at Fault Lines

The New Zealand Earthquake Commission worked with M&C Saatchi, Wellington, to produce a newspaper advertisement raising awareness of its work. The press ad was placed in the middle of two pages, with the fold in the middle, illustrating the tectonic fault lines running through New Zealand.
