Results and Effectiveness

Creative Execution
THE SOLUTION Use OUR agency as media. According to Florida law, owners or renters of commercial space are allowed to display or project from the inside of their establishments product or services made or sold in their premises. We took advantage that our agency is located at the heart of the Design District (where a major portion of the events took place) in a prime second floor corner with wrap-around windows. We edited available footage and photos of the Acura ZDX and transformed our windows into a massive screen to display these, coordinating 14 projectors of 5,000 Lumens.

Insights, Strategy & the Idea
THE CHALLENGE Use Miami Art Week, which includes Art Basel and Design Miami, for the prelaunch of the new Acura ZDX. THE PROBLEM Audi has been the sole automotive sponsor of these events for the last three years. Estimated investment to secure exclusivity in all media was close to $500,000. There seemed to be no way for Acura to associate itself with the event. WHY DID THIS MAKE SENSE FOR THE ACURA ZDX? The Acura ZDX is the first car designed by the new Acura Design Center in Torrance, California. No other vehicle in the history of the brand has maintained the purity of the design from sketch to clay model to actual vehicle available for purchase. Design is at the heart of the Acura ZDX and, as such, associating it with design-related events is natural and crucial for the acceptance of the vehicle.
