Youtube VideoWho's it for: Lexus by Saatchi & Saatchi
Why we like it: While Toyota's marketing is all about New Zealandness, this moody new campaign for its luxury subsidiary Lexus aims to drum home the brand's proud Japanese heritage—and, more specifically, its focus on craftsmanship. And it does that pretty damn well.
Youtube VideoWho's it for: University of Canterbury by Designworks and Flying Fish
