What. A. Year.

Farewell, 2020. This is what you put us through

By Ad Age Staff. Published on December 21, 2020

Ad Age looks back on the highs and lows—and more lows—of the past 12 months. There was plenty of heartbreak—the shocking death of Kobe Bryant at the start of the year, the devastation of COVID-19 on lives and livelihoods, the racial strife and social upheaval following the death of George Floyd, the turmoil of the election. Yet through it all, we saw plenty of innovation, ingenuity and change for the better at the hands of individuals and industries. We hope this review of the year will show you just how far we’ve come and will help you to look forward to a brighter 2021.
