Umparken im Kopf

Back

This campaign aimed at instigating a “mental U-turn” by thematising preconceptions and popular misapprehensions. Acknowledging that our mindset determines the way we see the world, it challenges age-old clichés. Illustrated to grab attention, the message was conveyed that the brand Opel is by no means as old-fashioned, boring and stuffy as may often be perceived. At the beginning, Opel, the originator of the campaign, remained anonymous, until it was finally disclosed with the question: “Is Opel still the way you think it is?”
