Kid Acne / Ford KeepItFestive

Kid Acne / Ford KeepItFestive

We’re delighted to start the new year by sharing the results of Kid Acne's collaboration with FORD for their KeepItFestive social media drive last December.

FORD enthusiasts from across the globe got the opportunity to see their world as it would appear in the Kid Acne universe for this interactive campaign: customers were invited to send photos of their cars in to be hand-personalised by Ed and released back into the social media sphere, accompanied by personalised Christmas messages from FORD.

Cue a cast of cute, offbeat Kid Acne characters, snow, and plenty of decorations alongside some rather intriguing car portraits and poses from the participants. The finished pieces are a playful combination of photography and illustration, perfectly complementing the atmosphere of the festive season.
