Three Little Pigs – Guardian advertisement for ‘Open Journalism’

Guardian released a new advertisement on Wednesday 29th February, which I have to say I thought was brilliant. Based on the story of the ‘Three Little Pigs’, it takes you through how the Guardian would cover such a story both in their print, and also online.  But it follows the story as it morphs through …
