Volvo's LifePaint gets a 'ghoulish' makeover

LifePaint was a product developed by Volvo in conjunction with agency Grey London and Swedish startup Albedo 100. The paint, a reflective non-toxic washable spray that cyclists can use on their cycling clothes and helmet, helps to increase visibility at night.

Developed initially as a promotional tool for the the Volvo XC90 earlier this year, LifePaint has now been released as a free-standing product during Halloween.

The promotional campaign ‘Be Scary, Be Safe’, encourages parents to spray their children and increase their visibility during their upcoming trick and treat adventures.

Happy Halloween everyone!
