Ads, Creativity

Global creative agency Attik made the latest brand campaign for the Scion line (Toyota Motor Sales US).  Elements from this new “What Moves You” campaign are already up in US in targeted television, cable, print and online media outlets, along with many out-of-home placements in high-traffic locations in major U.S. cities.

Since the brand launched nearly 10 years ago, Scion has had an affinity for the creative arts that has resulted in helping more than 1,700 artists follow their passions (…) Our support of emerging artists is and always has been a cornerstone of the brand and we bring that to light by featuring them and their personal stories as key parts of the campaign

Specifically, “What Moves You” campaign incorporates Scion creative partners, their stories of what moves them and how Scion has supported them to achieve their goals. The broadcast spot features Scion collaborators like artist, Neil Krug and automotive designer, Troy Sumitomo, professional racing driver, Michele Abbate and musician Prince Terrence and his band Hussle Club.

Search the world for an automotive brand that deeply invests in the passions and creative interests of young would-be buyers, and you are sure to find yourself immersed within the Scion Story (…) This newest campaign is aimed at honoring and celebrating the brand’s dedication, and reminding the world that Scion is totally tuned-into the passions of young people.
