BMW Map Update Premium 2008 - 10

Project Summary

TomTom (formerly Tele-Atlas) conducts yearly or bi-annual map updates for legacy BMW vehicles. In this endeavor, the client aimed to spotlight their improved points of interest data for the navigation system. Tele-Atlas had three key objectives to amplify BMW Group’s navigation progress: ensuring precise driver guidance to destinations, alleviating street congestion, and enhancing routes for efficiency.

In response to Tele-Atlas’ request, we devised a multichannel campaign in line with brand style guidelines. This campaign was designed to educate BMW owners about the necessity of updating their map systems.

Visual Inspiration

My creative spark ignited from a map pinpoint icon, propelling me towards a visual system that vividly illustrates the enhanced driving experience offered by BMW. Driving a BMW opens doors to fresh adventures and broadens customers’ horizons.

Print Publications

Collaborating with the team, we orchestrated a visual presentation that aligned seamlessly with BMW’s prevailing style guide, emphasizing clean white negative space. By isolating the car, we directed attention to its exquisite features. With each deliverable, it was crucial to craft complementary visuals that were visually simple, mirroring the straightforwardness of the cascade of points of interest. To maintain the transport theme, we curated singular elements symbolizing obstacles to a driver’s journey toward their destination. This approach amplified the narrative encapsulated in the full-page ads created for a 10-week rotation.

Map Premium Packaging

Upon purchasing a map update DVD, vehicle owners received a DVD tailored to their intended destination, resulting in the creation of multiple DVDs based on regions. To streamline this, a color system was incorporated into a contemporary packaging design that, like the advertisements, prominently featured negative space.

E-Commerce Intergrated Page

Within this context, the layout had to conform to the existing digital style guidelines of the website at that time. While the layout remained straightforward, it required a visual element that could break through the monochromatic design, capturing the attention of traditional web viewers. To address these layout constraints, we employed an image using primary colors, effectively resolving the challenge.

Online Ads

To ensure consistency in visual coherence across all deliverables, certain visual choices were made to guide the viewer’s eye and establish a parallel connection to the visual message, ultimately reinforcing the call-to-action.
