‘Marketing’ – even though we are familiar with this word, its
practice surpasses the very definition of the word. No brand or
company has perfected the art of marketing yet, but hundreds,

creative campaigns. Reviewing the year’s best digital marketing

Nissan’s “Fans” Marketing Campaign
Takes Traditional Art And Puts It Into Modern Perspective Through Life Saving Feature
Nissan designed its innovative high-beam assistant technology
to save lives on roads. Japan is a country fueled by tradition –
also famous for its hand-painted depictions of everyday life on
women’s fans. Agency TBWA put these two together for a series
of memorable print ads. There is a modern twist to these Japanese fan illustrations: although done in ancient ukiyoe painting style, they show
decidedly contemporary scenes: a man on a Segway, a woman
with a travelling suitcase, a boy with a soccer ball, another one
on a skateboard and a woman pushing a stroller.
The agency considered the car manufacturer’s origins, creating
a link between their nation’s tradition and life-saving
technology in a series of visually engaging ads.

by a child’s hand. The simple drawing is accompanied by a
message of “Happy Mother’s Day”. The clever design of this ad suggests – to mothers of the world – that they should treat themselves for all the hard work they’ve done parenting. And what better way to convince them than through a delightfully messy child’s drawing?

faces and bodies.

for help if they find themselves in these tragic situations.
Using shock factor and art’s educational value to make an
important point, the organization engages in a global
conversation about the burning issue of violence against women by putting memorable images in a new, disturbing
