'Juke by you' car-decal contest draws 13,000 entries

JAPAN - Nissan and TBWA/Hakuhodo have created an online film to celebrate the winner of a decal-design contest that drew thousands of people to create their own visual designs for the Nissan Juke.

Client: Nissan

Agency: TBWA/Hakuhodo

Market: Japan

Campaign scope: An online contest called 'Juke by you', which invited consumers to design a set of decals for the Nissan Juke using an online tool.

Details: The contest received more than 13,000 entries. Kyoto resident Masashi Sugimoto won with a design based on Kumadori, the traditional stage makeup of Kabuki. The brand applied Sugimoto's design to a car, revealed it at a Tokyo press event and produced the above film to show it off.

Press release quote: "Nissan Juke is equipped with customizable side door mirrors and center console, and ‘Juke by you’, created by TBWA\Hakuhodo, expanded on this customization concept to envision a new era in which people can casually design and customize their own cars, with the same ease and simplicity as changing their mobile-phone cases."

Campaign Asia Pacific's comments: The winning design is great, but what really stands out is the gallery website, where you could easily spend hours perusing the 360-degree views of every submitted design. Our only complaint is that full customisation of vehicles is not yet a reality. One day our children will look back on today's limited selection of car colours the same way we laugh at Henry Ford's supposed statement that you could have the Model T in any color you wanted, so long as it was black. 

Previously: The same brand and agency allowed a Star Wars stormtrooper to break out of the same old black-and-white routine and delivered pizzas to some extreme locations.
