Project Description

Client: CarsGuide
Art Direction: Lee Jackson
Copywriting: Brendan Shanahan

CarsGuide is one of Australia’s largest online car classified sites. Research showed that choosing a new car was a complicated task that many consumers dreaded. In response, Caballeros offered the tagline “Buy Cars. Sell Cars. Simple”, complimented by a series of animations utilising whimsical visual metaphors, including fish, balloons and birds. These struck an approachable and friendly tone that promised an experience at odds with most people’s perception of buying a car. They ran at 30 and 15 second lengths online and on TV.
