Case studies

“The creation of the New 308 in 3D app allowed us to demonstrate the car to customers before it was available in showrooms, and get them to engage with us in an innovative way. The clever addition of the virtual car meant that we could showcase the app across online and offline channels. A truly integrated and successful campaign!”
