Concept and Execution - GSXR Collection

Not every ad we do can feature fire jumps, chain beatings, kissing lesbians, or smoky burnouts. Sometimes even Icon, the moto kings of industry disrespect, have to notch it back a couple. Such is the case with the GSXR Collection ad. Strict corporate guidelines dictated that the GSXR gear be portrayed in a more 'family-friendly' manner. The Icon design team, being extremely clever, produced the following. Not exactly a cutting-edge hate-mail inducing ad campaign but successful none the less.
