National Geographic recently hosted an “Evening of Exploration” at the Natural History Museum in London, the biggest event the organization has ever held in Europe. The gala was an opportunity to celebrate National Geographic’s 130 years of groundbreaking storytelling with National Geographic Explorers, National Geographic leaders, and luminaries from across Europe and Africa.

National Geographic’s Global Advertising/Partnership teams are earning well-deserved recognition for their groundbreaking work. The Shorty Social Good Awards recently named National Geographic’s integrated partnerships with GSK Consumer Healthcare (“Chasing Genius”), Stella Artois (“Buy a Lady a Drink”) and Microsoft (“#MakeWhatsNext”) as finalists for this year’s honors. Separately, National Geographic’s partnership with Nike for the documentary “Breaking2” was selected as one of Twitter’s most creative international campaigns so far this year.

The rebrand will reach all of the company’s properties, in addition to its nonprofit organization, National Geographic Society. The 700 million consumers that National Geographic reaches each month will notice a unified brand logo and tagline across its vast portfolio.
