Dodge Charger Yahoo Million Dollar TakeoverArt Direction

Dodge Charger Yahoo Million Dollar Takeover

Art Directed a last minute pitch for Dodge's Million Dollar Takeover Banner. Launching during the college football bowls, we came up with an idea to have the Charger actually be a running back.

We saw it dodging (no pun intended) and swerving to avoid the Xs and Os to finally score a touchdown.
