VW: Pilot's Wanted by lonegunman VW: Pilot's Wanted by lonegunman
This is just your basic, clean VW ad. And like every other VW ad, it's all about the car. Well, maybe a little about the plane, but mostly about the car... ;) Feedback and comments are appreciated!

This reminds me of when I had my 01 GTI and I would open her up on the highway. Man that lil 1.8T could scoot!

This is a great idea!
A few errors in the execution, as kedikumu points out, but this is good enough to want me swap out my current wallpaper.

Just too bad it isn't available in a higher resolution, but that's your call and I can see why :)

I've added this a long time ago, but have yet to give you any comment. Overall, this is a nice piece of ad. The execution and art direction is not bad as well. :)

As for me, I would have cropped the whole thing more towards the left, making both the plane and the car towards the right. The car is 2/3 in the visual, but the impression of the whole thing, especially the car looks 'centralized'.

Make some adjustment to the photoshop works as some had commented. Especially the windscreens' lightings and reflection, motion and the shadow.

Love both the copywriting. But I would have just use the 'Drivers Wanted'. It seems like both the copy are stealing the limelight. The visual itself can tell the audience that you are 'flying'. Use smaller point font for 'Drivers Wanted', a 12-14 point (in an A4 landscape layout, scale accordingly to your size). If you insist on using the copy and the VW logo that way, I suggest you shift both of these to the right.

I'm not sure if the MB logo is the car dealer or your name, I suggest you remove this if you a putting it in your book.

Cheers. :)

fantastic.

my only meager suggestion would be to give the plane a little more motion blur or something because it kinda takes away from the car.

this is very nice, but i think the plane is taking so much of the frame and its tones are so rich that he sort of undermines the importance of the car.

Nice concept! Pretty freakin' sweet concept if you ask me!

Was this a real ad you developed for VW? I hope so, because if they see this they will probably steal it!

Good work, and good job making the concept work!

did i comment on this?, even if, it's worth comments and :+fav:s a lot. The idea is excellent, colors are powerful, and typography is good too. One thing is, what if you tried plave the fuel gun in the tank? ; meaning u r making a real combination between the car fueling and the Plans one, which makes a real action not just a trying action, this will add more surrealism to the idea and will even show it more. Good luck
