TBWA\Chiat\Day tells us about their new "The Way of Infiniti" campaign: "The essence of every Infiniti is captured in two brush strokes of a shodo artist brush. Within them lie not only the design character of the vehicle but the emotional experience the car is intended to create. TBWA\Chiat\Day has taken this ancient art form and modernized it into a series of shodo icons that represent the inspirations and features that make up each car. The idea is to create a contemporary visual language that instantly communicates the Infiniti brand. An Iconic language that explains The Way Of Infiniti."
