The brand new Range Rover Evoque is the SUV that changes the way SUVs are perceived. The Evoque launch campaign changes the way that cars are launched to an affluent audience. The insight was simple. The Evoque stands out from the crowd. It is designed for people who do not run with the herd. From this, the idea of Presence was developed, and extended into the US Presence Project. A true multi-media campaign that included TV and print but with a strong digital emphasis was created to target the car's prospect audience of young urban style-setters. Innovative partnerships with artists, with Apple, and with Gilt Groupe saw the car appear where cars do not normally register. Evoque was the first ever car for sale in Gilt - it was bought in 11 seconds. A technically ground-breaking iAd pushed the boundaries of mobile advertising. Marquee placement on the NY Times saw the Evoque become the news. After Evoque, car launches will never be the same. Traditional has been left behind.
