When Lexus launched their UX crossover in 2019, they wanted to convey the potential for adventure in the urban landscapes and drivers for which the UX was designed. The understood the value of murals as brand-builders.


Their vision: in a world that's already mapped to completion, with GPS tracking and pinpoint navigation anywhere a city driver might find themselves, the greatest sense of adventure lies in a creative’s ability to shape the world around them into something new through art and ingenuity.


Our online platform removes the friction from the process, making it easy for Lexus to find and work with professional street artists. As both a muralist and a software product manager, I founded Beautify to connect people who want great art with the professional artists who create it.


Lexus partnered with Beautify to paint murals on three walls around Los Angeles as new finds to explore, and also partnered with social-impact marketing firm Givewith to create a digital campaign that tied the concept of exploration and discovery to the murals and the new UX vehicle.
