I think that "engineering" is a participle and "amazing" is too, though it's acting as an absolute adjective, standing in for something like "amazing [things]". Of course, some linguists say there is no real distinction between present participles and gerunds. Nevertheless, this campaign strikes me as awkward and too clever for its own good.

Forward-doing is a particularly precise type of anticipation, thinking you know exactly what is going to be. That's an even more dangerous pastime than speeding.
