Nissan - ambient marketing

The art of parking

/
Are you an experienced driver? If so, how would you mark your parking ability? I’m asking because you could be one of the artists [mostly anonymous, I’m afraid] that have been part of the Nissan exhibition in Paris.

Citroen - social campaign

This summer, be safe! [advertising campaign]

Some months ago, Citroën launched a social campaign against the “text and drive” attitude that many people have in common. The advert headline is simply “Tex and drive can be dangerous”, but the three visuals are related to a very powerful and amazingly creative metaphor. Curious? Keep reading... :)
