Mercedes-Benz: Shiftography

February 27, 2014Filed under Print and Automotive

Makes hard work easier to handle. The new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter with innovative ECO Gear manual transmission.

People in the Sprinter target group don’t do nine-to-five jobs. Night shifts, overtime and unscheduled events place new demands on human and machine every day. It’s a good job that the new Sprinter with six-speed gearbox adapts perfectly to the individual needs of its drivers. To show that it is on hand to make light work of hard tasks, we developed the first ever font to be generated from real gear change manoeuvres: Shiftography. To generate the font, we tracked the gear change manoeuvres during a courier driver’s night shift. A complete alphabet was created from the various gear changes.
