    Calling designers together, brainstorming.

    The client opts for a concept with an emphasis on how fast the car arrives. Making dozens of sketches, drawing illustrations, writing slogans, designing text potions, preparing ads for print, submitting them to the client. Just a few days left before the campaign launch.

    Suddenly the client announces that he also likes the taxi-smartphone concept and asks us to create another campaign.

    Setting off.

    Choosing the sketch where the car is yellow, it is shown from the back, and the angles of the phone are rounded. Deciding to show the car from the hood instead of the rear.

    Drawing a vector map.

    Asking Timur to tell us about headlights, bumpers, and grids. Trying to avoid similarities with any particular car model and to keep the distinctive features of a phone.

    Studying the city requirements for advertisements on the face of Hydroproject building. The billboard shouldn’t be brightly lit at night not to disturb local residents. Designing the night version.
