How the brandgym Developed Castrol’s Global Brand Positioning

Immersive interviews helped the global team on Castrol Edge, a premium high-performance oil, get ‘under the bonnet’ of car owners and their attitudes to driving. This insight was the springboard for creating and exploring a range of different positioning ideas around the world.

The finalised aspirational brand positioning was the creative springboard for Castrol’s first digitally-led global campaign, The Titanium Trials, which filmed well-known drivers as they pushed their boundaries to the limit. 350m views were generated reaching 500m consumers and driving Castrol Edge to be the company’s biggest global motor oil brand.
