Volkswagen BlueMotion: Save the Vaal Environment

It’s all about giving a little bit back. Eco-conscious BlueMotion technology

BlueMotion is Volkswagen’s more environmentally-sensitive range. For the print campaign, we asked our client to put their money where their mouth is, by donating part of their very expensive advertising space to small, eco-focused non-profit organizations who really needed the exposure. The non-profits benefited from getting their message out there, and BlueMotion proved itself as a brand that doesn't just talk, but takes action.

Love it!
Brilliant marketing idea takes center stage, no need for gimmicky art direction.

I love the idea, but I am not so sure it will fully work in the real world.

wondering if they gave more of the ad space to the non profit, maybe it would dial it up a few notches
