Neutrogena: Wrinkled ad (DDB, Brazil)

"Never been easier to prevent the expression lines."


From AdsoftheWorld:
"Neutrogena released an interactive booklet in which people can share their own experience in how to eliminate expression lines. Created by DDB Brasil, the ad has actual lines, as if they were wrinkles on women faces. To eliminate them, the reader must pull the product’s package. The action refers to the use of night time facial moisturizer Neutrogena Ultra-light, which prevents and softens the appearance of expression lines."

Papaya King billboards, Los Angeles

Campaign launching New York City's most iconic and beloved hot dog chain, Papaya King,
into Los Angeles, the first market outside of New York. The campaign focused on a
strategy of leveraging the New York heritage of the brand while at the same time hitting on
observations uniquely LA. A Papaya King food truck was mobilized to hit key neighborhoods

those connected to the brand through social media. Meanwhile outdoor boards with a
