As highlighted in the video clip, Harley-Davidson chose to utilize the “Carousel” design for the ad campaign they ran promoting the Street 500. At its easiest, the Slide carousel design functions as a slideshow, permitting advertisers to show multiple images in a single Instagram advertisement. It’s one-of-a-kind because it’s a format that’s just readily available on Instagram through advertisements.
Harley-Davidson did something so ingenious in this project that I have not seen before. Actually, I’m not even certain Instagram themselves thought about this when they made the design available to marketers. They picked to deal with the design as a scenic view as opposed to a slideshow and also used 4 images for each and every ad that, when scrolled with on an Instagram feed, turned into one giant, thorough mural.
This was an extremely creative approach to essentially increase the advertisement room readily available to them, and also they loaded this area with surreal, aesthetically involving images. It is necessary to note that the bike, as well as the tagline for each ad (e.g. “when the ocean calls”), filled up the first image in the Carousel (or in the panorama, the leftmost quarter of the picture) – as Instagram puts it, “the initial framework must work the hardest”.
Get innovative with the medium. Instagram puts a lot of power in the hands of advertisers, particularly with the recent introductions of the Slide carousel format and, much more significantly, 60-second video. Flex those imaginative muscles, and you’ll be awarded with a campaign that’s both distinct and also appealing.
