THE TRANSFORMATION OF A LANDMARK

The four-cylinder tower in Munich – BMW’s headquarters and symbol of the gasoline engine – became, thus, on 18 December 2017 an icon of BMW’s vision for the future. A carefully choreographed spectacle of light turned the four cylinders into four 101-meter-high electric batteries.

BE THE ONE WHO DARES

The BMW X2 campaign  is using a range of new digital communications channels to reach BMW fans around the world, in line with the brand’s new focus on a more youthful “Sheer Driving Pleasure”. BMW communications are taking a noticeably younger, fresher approach, with a new tonality that explores unexpected channels.

THE WORLD’S FASTEST AUTOMOTIVE CONTENT MARKETING WEBSITE

Car manufacturers have optimized their websites for mobile use, but many still feel slow and complex. To reflect the cars that it produces, we designed and developed BMW.com as an all-new dynamic global content hub. In close collaboration with user experience specialists, designers, and editors, the team aimed to create the best mobile user experience by using a combination of Google AMP and PWA technology.

THE MONA IPA - AN EXPERIENTIAL INSTALLATION

On the square in front of the “Centre Georges Pompidou”, BMW caught everybody’s attention with a huge, 70-square-metre LED installation of the famous Mona Lisa, which tied in with the presentation of the new BMW Personal Assistant. Mona Lisa answered everything curious visitors wanted to know. Using face tracking technology, she even moved her face and hands, bringing this 500-year-old painting to life.
