Owning new worlds

Ford rebranded in 2016, becoming a mobility company driven by the idea of ‘Freedom of Movement’. Ford Australia wanted to get people excited by this energetic new proposition. To do this, the brand had to be somewhere nobody expected and part of new conversations.

Partnering with innovators

For people to fully understand the rebrand, they needed to experience freedom themselves. So in 2017 we helped Ford Australia became one an official partner of Vivid Sydney, a festival that celebrates innovative ideas, art and technology.

Illuminating the new Ford

We helped Sydney move in new ways with an installation that turned the humble swing into a thing of wonder. By day, thousands rode the swings and by night, crowds watched as the they became a musical light show.

Part of the conversation

We continued the conversation at the conference aspect of Vivid Sydney, where Ford hosted discussion panels exploring the global mobility revolution. The speakers looked at the future of our cities and explored how tomorrow’s Australians will move through new urban landscapes.


Value for the audience

The audience was treated to an exhilarating experience that was both beautiful to watch in person and made for great, shareable social content – there were over 6.9 million engagements with content online.

Value for the brand

This experience aligned Ford with innovation and forward-thinking technology and allowed the rebrand to be seen by millions – over 27 million online and a staggering 2.3 million in person.

Arm IPO Film

To illustrate Arm's (ARM) incredible growth potential from producing high-performance, power-efficient CPUs for chip designers, foundries, and software developers, Imagination created an IPO film that embodied the company's tagline: "The Future is Built on Arm." The film featured the CEO and CFO, as well as senior executives from leading customers such as Nvidia, AWS and Mercedes, among others.
