The outgoing Lexus ES was unable to connect emotionally with consumers. We needed to show that the new ES made a big visual statement of its owner’s success. Upon seeing the car for the first time, consumers described the car as sleek, sharp, and even sexy—words that would never be used to describe the past model. We showcased the new ES as a vehicle designed to appeal as much to one's heart as to one's head.
Notable features of this site: Beautiful intro animation and transitions. Video clips of the four senses - Sight, Sound, Touch, and Taste - that can be controlled with your cursor. Dreamy orchestral/spa style soundtrack utilizing musical rollover sounds that turn the user into a composer. An oversized gallery of images that can be initiated from any image on the site. Large flyaround 360's and CGI demos of product features. Targeted for 1024x768, but resizeable for very large monitors. Industry response has been extremely positive.
