Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Introduce VW Amarok to the adventurous Turkish Youth.
Turkish Youth is very active on Facebook and VW is a love brand in a Turkey. So it was a perfect match.
The brand insight of Amarok is that you don't ever have to stop with an Amarok. We took that insight and carried it to still images. Now, Amarok is in motion even in still images.
Turkish youth loves new and experimental things in digital realm. The VW on the other side is very well known for its creative approach.

Creative Execution
We wanted to emphasise Amarok's capability to keep moving on all terrains without having to have to stop and make alterations to the vehicle. Until now, Facebook albums were viewed just as stand alone still images. So it seemed appropriate to make Amarok move even in still images.

FlipBook is designed for Facebook as its sole platform.

Results and Effectiveness
The Facebook Flipbook has turned the Facebook platform into a new medium. The project has been featured in leading blogs like Digital Buzz Blog and gained a large number of likes and tweets. Also, the case study video has been watched more than 5,000 times within the first few days following the launch.
