online MINI Coupé brochure
For the MINI Coupe, MINI’s London-based ad agency created a very stylized brochure in the form of a graphic novel.  They vary somewhat from country to country, depending on the models offered, but all contain the same detailed and dynamic illustrations.

MINI Space discusses the creation of the brochure and gives a link to view and download the online UK version of it.
