The Yahoo! homepage has been completely redesigned, prompting the internet giant to go back to schoolâ€"literally. To spread the word about the new-look site, agency Soho Square/OgilvyOne adopted a new-school approach by recruiting film school students to craft an entire advertising campaign around the idea that everybody's Yahoo! is changing. "The homepage was changed to be more personal and easier for people to use, and you could say we took the same approach with the advertisingâ€"make it more 'human' by inviting non-advertising professionals to help execute the work," says creative director Chris Curry. "We wanted a wide range of executions, from animation to motion graphics to film, so going to students was the best way to find all different types of filmmakers."
