BMW M3 Coupé – Light Wall ReflectionPosted: November 25, 2011
The brief was to promote the BMW M3 Coupé with a very special billboard at the Hamburg airport – a 50 x 2m light wall in the middle of the arrivals hall. The BMW M3 Coupé is one of the fastest coupés in the world. Its performance really exceeds all expectations. Our aim was to transport the benefits of the product, as well as to get the most out of the advertising space.
Checking the location and realising the shiny, reflecting floor in the rather dark arrivals hall, we came up with the idea to work with the reflection.
For a car that knows no boundaries, we created a billboard that doesn’t either. We designed a headline out of a special font: letters, which can be mirrored. Their reflection on the shiny floor made them complete.
We created a campaign that illustrated the brand- and product-values: through innovation – one of the most important brand values – BMW manages to achieve more than what seems possible. The billboard exceeded its maximum for a car that exceeds maximums. We reached the 1.07 million people passing* in a way no normal billboard would have reached them.
Furthermore, we simply doubled the media space and the attention – which saved us 41,000 Euros of media budget.
