2007-2012 Nissan Leaf Print/Events/Social media campaign

I was creative director for this Nissan Leaf campaign in Women’s Health, Men’s Health, Runner’s World and Bicycling, which tied together social media, Web, print, and a presence at national events from the New York and Boston marathons, to the US Pro Cycling Challenge and Tour of California. For more information about how this all worked, see the 2012 campaign page. There was so much to this five-year campaign, and it’s technically ancient, so I’m only highlighting some of my favorite print work from 2010. Here’s a series of fold-out workout posters from Women’s Health, Men’s Health, Runner’s World and Bicycling:
