magazine poster design

Editorial design for Toyota’s Aygo Magazine that reflects the brand values expressed below.

Spontaneous, energetic, capable.

A small package that’s full of surprises, the AYGO takes everything that’s great about driving, and ditches the bad bits.

It’s nippy and responsive, but won’t keep dragging you back to the petrol station for fill-ups. It’s compact and can park just about anywhere, but seats four tall adults in complete comfort. And even though it’s cool and full of attitude, it’s utterly reliable, thanks to practically bomb-proof build quality and the 5 year Toyota warranty.
