vw_norway

This ia quite good. VW Norway are havning a competition where the participants can win a new Golf. All you have to do is to keep your slighltly moving mouse hand over the car the longest, you get a 5 mnute break every hour. They had to have a knock out round before christmas and now the final is here. As I write there is 12 players left of the 175 players who got through and it has been going for 3 days.

3D marketing

December 12, 2008

I have come across some truly inspireing Ideas using some fancy (but simple) 3D software to let you interact with an object using a piece of paper and a camera. I’ll let the videos speak for themself. They are in German, but you don’t have to know German to understand the awesomeness.

And

We tried that Ford Ka example  in the office. One of the guys downloaded the software to his Nokia. It works so easily, and its totally fun to interact with. Just point the camera at the paper and the car appears.

3D Fun for Everyone

Test yourself and find out which Saab is perfect for you. I got some flashy fast convertible, which will you get? (I am waiting for a comment from Igor saying he got the station wagon).

Do you need a new car?

October 23, 2008

Fuck Fiat

Fuck Fiat.

No, that’s not a joke. That’s a very real Brazilian company (they have four branches, and a website).

Mini Electric

October 21, 2008

In Brazil, hybrid cars are not that cool. They are just standard cars. Yes, Brazil’s “default” car option is the “total flex” (or flexible fuel): you can fill your tank with petrol, sugar cane alcohol (ethanol), or a combination of both. There are a variety of Total Flex cars from which to choose, ranging from the Vauxhall Corsa (Opel) to Mitsubishi’s Pajero TR4.

Natural gas is also a popular option – with R$15,30 (approx.  £4.20) you can fill a small tank and run up to 100km with your car. Brazil’s electricity is comparatively clean (84% is hydroelectric), which means (in my opinion) that Brazil can be considered a world leader in the fight against global warming! Oh yeah!

But I’m not here to talk about Brazil. I’m here to talk about the new Electric Mini I just saw on Wired:

Electric Mini

BMW will produce approximately 500 of these very-very-very-very-very cute electric Mini Coopers – for select private and corporate customers only…….. (that’s so unfair!) It’s the first electric car I see that don’t look like a toy:

Ogilvy’s latest for Ford

September 23, 2008

Noah Harris’ latest video for ford with Ogilvy and BlinkInk, Brand republic has a full article here, basically it says that it is targeted at women and aiming to establish itself as a style icon, maybe they should have thought about that when they designed the car as-well? I mean the new Fiat 500 is a potential style icon, the new Ford Fiesta is in my eyes pretty bland, and the micro-site is shocking, nice TV ad non the less.

Ferrari concept car

August 19, 2008

According to Fubiz, Ferrari has made this concept car. Its a very interesting piece of design based on the shape of a wing. And I can imagine that those glasses will be a right hit with the cheesy marketing guys.

New Porsche Site

August 18, 2008

The company I’m working for at the moment (BB-K.com) here in Germany just recently launched the new Porsche website. It’s not a completely new site but more of a facelift, with extras. The site has coprporate designs style but also very clean, and I really like the interface of the main menu. You can actually browse all the models and find the car you like without clicking once. I also reccomend you check out the ‘build your own porsche’ section in 3D. Very nice but you need Shockwave installed.

The new VW Sciroosoao? (scirocco)

August 11, 2008

The new Website for the new VW Scirocco. An amazing site with great video and 3d production. Well worth a visit, only comment would be, why don’t they  have a more catchy name for such a cool car?

Have fun!! 😉

Smart Car, Genius Website

July 22, 2008

Agency Republic has made the best car website in the history of car websites. The Smart Car website is truly a smart site, is it simple, informative, beautiful and so good it is viral. It achieves all this through an interactive, narrated, flash video experience. The narration and the scenes also makes it an incredibly British site, I have never felt so much like I am in England, while visiting a website before (if you keep the site open without interacting with it the narrator will ask for tea). Genius
