Positioned as the ultimate escape hatch, the new campaign ‘Get the Fiesta Out of There’, targets young urbanites aged 18-25 caught in every day awkward situations.

JWT enlisted the help of award-winning illustrator, James Gulliver Hancock for billboards. Radio executions (listen below) have also been launched across the Today and Triple M networks and will run until the end of December.

Ford Fiesta partnered with music video site Vevo to create two exclusive concerts at Melbourne’s HiFi and Kevin Clubs.

“This is a really confident campaign platform that builds an identity for Ford’s smallest of small-car nameplates,” said Richard Muntz, ECD, JWT Melbourne.
