BEHIND THE STORY // Roadster’s brand new collection, Freelander,had a brand new fashion catalogue to go with it. The only problem? It was competing against countless other brands within the Myntra universe itself.

Our challenge? Stand out in a sea of sameness.

THE IDEA // We noticed that our audience had a penchant for road trip stories. They loved telling us the adventures they saw on their journeys. Once Upon A Road used this to its advantage.

PHASE ONE //

We started on Twitter by launching India’s first ever people-powered road trip story. 

Over the course of 72 hours, 621 unique authors joined in. We saw 5000+ tweets come together to create a freewheeling adventure.

PHASE TWO //

We didn’t end the exercise there. We turned the story into a graphic novel.

15 illustrated panels brought the adventure to life, which was released on Instagram.

PHASE THREE //

We then released the same graphic novel within the Myntra app - with one small difference. The catalogue was woven into the narrative.

Clicking on any panel redirected first of its kind Shop-in-Shop experience. We worked with the Myntra tech team to create the users to the same outfit the protagonist was wearing. 

Thus, the world’s first shoppable graphic novel was born.
