Creative gallery

On July 27, 2011 The Globe and Mail ran its first French door ad execution in its Globe Life section.
The ad was created by Red Urban and MediaCom.

The front cover included a bottom banner and a special French door unfolding compartment.

Opening the ad.

The ad invited readers to see how far they could go on a single tank of gas in a new VW TDI vehicle.

Impressive! Toronto to Atlanta on a single tank.

The section also featured two supporting full colour pages.

Volkswagen was the exclusive advertiser in that day's Globe Life section.

The semi-gloss paper stock along with The Globe and Mail's state of the art printing capability were the perfect compliment to this attention commanding placement.
