Design boards. As a promotional partnership, the design uses the current (as of December, 2018) MotorTrend on air branding package as a guide, coupled with an elegance to reflect the Lincoln Aviator brand. The spot was designed in 16:9 center punch, 1920x1080, so that the design could function in both 16:9 and 1:1, 1080x1080, without the need for revision to accommodate sizing. These were the boards submitted to the client for review and approval, before animation began.
