A 2017 PR Yearbook—remembering the year that was

by | Jan 11, 2018 | Analysis, Public Relations

There’s no such thing as a “typical” year in the world of PR, but 2017 proved to be particularly unique. This new infographic looks back at the moments we will remember most… and some, like our awkward high school photos, that we would rather forget.

The graphic from Version 2.0 Communications captures all of last year’s memorable moments (for better or worse) in an old-school, yearbook style format.

Highlights include “Class Couple” of Amazon and Whole Foods, The Astronomy Club celebrating this year’s solar eclipse and In Memoriam of the people, like Hugh Hefner, and products, like the iPod, that we lost over the course of the year.

Enjoy, and share your thoughts in the comments below.
