Opening up a world of luxury

Few people know that every Rolls-Royce car is a bespoke creation, nor the lengths that the company goes to create each of them. We needed to tell this story in an accessible way, whilst maintaining the luxurious nature of the brand.

A gallery-worthy experience

Every Rolls-Royce is like a work of art: unique, beautiful and highly collectible. So the perfect environment for this story was a gallery in the art capital of the world with an exhibition that was more artwork than brand experience.

The art of perfection

Inside Rolls-Royce at London’s Saatchi Gallery was a multi-sensory exhibition that illuminated nine key aspects of the company's creative process. It brought to life the exquisite materials, unrivalled technology and supreme craftsmanship that goes into creating their cars. The interactives remade themselves for each visitor, ensuring everyone had a personalised and uniquely shareable experience.

The first above-the-line campaign

We supported the exhibition with an above-the-line campaign, the first in the brand’s history. It included a brand film at Waterloo station, billboards at Victoria station, escalator screens across the London Underground and a longer film online.


Value for the audience

The exhibition opened the doors to one of the world’s most prestigious brands for 15,000 visitors. Iit was a truly immersive and educational experience.

An outstanding, once in a lifetime event.

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. In addition to the 27-minute IPO film, Imagination created short-form videos for the corporate website, IR site, and listing event, plus cutdowns for social media platforms.
