Charts, tables and graphs are good as supporting evidence but don’t really hit you in the gut. We excavated the key automotive cyber security messages and wrote a script all about educating, engaging and entertaining.

For inspiration, CDK sent over a 1953 National Safety Council video on distracted driving. Full of amazing but terrible cliches and cheesy animation, the video—with its old-school style and the more-you-know message—provided the perfect springboard for playfully creating awareness.

We set the first part in the safety-video-era of the 50s to give a clear and cheeky context and then, in the second part, transitioned to today. The message is clear: times may change, but driving always has its dangers—today, they’re just way more complex.

Our design team took a deep dive through the aesthetic world of mid-century safety videos and retro car commercials. The historical specificities and eccentricities created a world that feels accurate and draws us into the power of the message.

How it all turned out

The mock safety video was a great warm up act, providing humor and a spark for kicking off CDK’s more serious conversation on automotive cyber security. In both 1950 and today, video is the most engaging medium to convey your message.
