Crossed Senses

IN A WORLD WITH 7 BILLION PEOPLE, 4% OF THEM FEEL EVERYTHING IN A UNIQUE WAY.

Imagine hearing colors or tasting shapes. This is how the synesthetics live the world. So, we decided to take advantage of this superhuman ability to try to figure out what it feels like to drive Peugeot 2008: a different car in every sense.

In partnership with the Discovery Channel, we created Cross Senses, a unique experiment in Branded Content. We invited 5 synesthetic people to drive the Peugeot 2008 and tell 5 creators what they felt. Together, they turned these sensations into real works.

We invited several food enthusiasts to taste them at one of the best-known restaurants in São Paulo. But this was a special edition: only 100 bottles of each sauce were produced. These were sent to famous chefs, influencers and special costumers.

Texture of Driving
