A new RKCR/Y&R print ad for the Landrover Defender features a world map made up entirely of illustrations of the vehicle’s distinctive shape

This is the latest execution in what has been a really strong campaign over a number of years (remember the passport stamp ad? It’s another appropriate, well-crafted ad and not an idea we are aware of having seen before (at which point we stand well back in anticipation of multiple links posted in the comments proving otherwise….)
