Costume designer Carl Gerard Elkins and photographer Mierswa-Kluska were approached by Goodyear Dunlop to do an advertorial spread to “photographically realize key, underlying themes in the Goodyear product line, namely: strength, robustness and armor.”
Ad agency: Anzinger Wüschner Rasp.
NOTE: Here’s a fun Goodyear tagline story:
For years, Goodyear’s smart slogan was:
“The Best Tires In The World Have Goodyear Written All Over Them”
But, back in the 1990s, a competitor took them to court over that claim, and won.
What did Goodyear do?
They added, in much smaller type, ahead of the tagline in their logo lock-up:
- Greece will decide on Sunday whether they will accept austerity measures as a condition of a bailout that may stave off an imminent financial and economic crisis.
- Some 150 migrants stranded in the French city of Calais stormed the Channel Tunnel in an attempt to make it to British territory.
- It took a while, but an English national soccer team has finally defeated Germany in a major tournament. England took third place with a 1-0 win over the top-ranked German team in the FIFA Women's World Cup ⚽️
- Chile defeated Argentina on penalties to win the Copa America tournament. It's the first ever trophy for Chile in the 99 years of the Copa ⚽️
