Amélie Crashes Cars Through DMV Walls


By The Denver Egotist / / Denver ad agency Amélie Company is crashing cars again. Last time, it was on a 3D Billboard. Now, it’s through the walls of Colorado DMVs. “We were approached by CDOT to do a POP display that would hold brochures aimed at teen drivers, and off the bat we knew that this piece needed to have impact,” said Paul Suggett, Amélie’s Creative Director. “So, we went to a bunch of DMVs and looked at the bland environment. That’s when we decided that crashing a car through one of those pale walls would really grab the attention of teens, who are usually sat with their heads down sending text messages and playing games.” Printed on clear, low-tack vinyl, the pieces are accompanied by an acrylic brochure holder. Initially, ten DMVs will have these pieces installed this week, with more coming over the next year.

    Definitely captures attention in a typically stale environment. Keep up the good work Amelie. CDOT has never had much of a presence, but your work is changing that.
