Mazda's grid view publication.

mazda-instagram-aug-2014Who has time to read a magazine these days, right? Especially one from a car brand. But what if an auto brand, Mazda, and its agency JWT created a magazine and placed it on Instagram? And what if they made “reading” as simple as tapping nine panels to watch some video content? You could probably get through at least two magazines a week. This Insta-mag to promote the MX-5 follows the “Long Drive Home,” which also took advantage of Instagram’s grid view to create a map of Canada.
