Title: Motorcycle

A blind spot on the road is called that for a reason: it’s a visual dead zone. Mercedes-Benz’s Blind Spot Assist reads the unseen danger and alerts the driver to it. We created this ad to illustrate the power and value of seeing when you can’t. The poster was imprinted with real braille spelling out the word for "motorcycle" in the blind spot of the Mercedes vehicle.
