These images were created for motorcycle insurance company Progressive. This campaign was conceived by ad agency Arnold Worldwide and created in close cooperation with creative production company Taylor James. The campaign builds on the customer insight that motorcycle riders are one with their bikes. It’s mythical but also mystical, featuring a creature called a Motaur.

Now, what is a Motaur?

Imagine the mystical imagery that surrounds the half-human, half-horse creatures in Greek mythology. Now, take that imagery and apply it to the 21st century. Motaur is half man, half motorcycle, and unapologetically proud to be one with his bike.

Curious how we created these images? Below you can check out the BTS video.
