Ling’s Cars Throws Design Out the Window and Leases $80 Million in Cars

By | October 9, 2013

Ling’s Cars, a successful car leasing company in the UK owned by Ling Valentine, threw the design book out the window when designing their website and probably ran over it a couple times in her Chinese nuclear missile launch truck.  When I first looked at this website, the banners started flashing, a young woman started singing karaoke, a chicken kept walking back and forth in front of the Twitter feed…  I could not believe my eyes.  I probably sat there for several minutes staring with my mouth open in disbelief.

It just goes to show you, being conventional and following the rules isn’t the only way to make it big.  She did, after all, lease over $80 million in cars in 20121.  Not bad for a website with an animated chicken on it.


And she really does have a retired Chinese military nuclear decontamination truck with a fake nuclear missile on the back. 🙂
