Volkswagen wanted a print campaign to recruit new employees. We figured candidates should be able to think for themselves, so our campaign attacked the thousands of Powerpoint-loving, chino-wearing corporate drones who sound like they know what they’re talking about in interviews, but whose every sentence is filled with meaningless drivel. And our attack wasn’t just verbal. The visual style too was a deliberate, tongue-in-cheek reference to the sort of cheesy Powerpoint slides beloved by these corporate sheep.
Print advertisment created by Ogilvy, South Africa for Volkswagen, within the category: Automotive.
