Client - Mutual Community & Pharmacy Guild
Objective - Reinforce the role of pharmacists as an approachable
community healthcare specialist.
Problem - Efficacy. Traditional ads with pictures of "trusted"
pharmacists in white coats reinforce the pharmacist's role as a professional but
fail to deliver the needed "cut through" to be noticed, nor the impact to be

Strategy - Develop a simple, memorable creative execution, with high
entertainment value, that overcomes the target market's natural resisitance to

role of pharmacy.
Creative Solution - Use colourful animated characters in humourous
Disciplines employed - Advertising & PR - TV Plus Full Colour Full
Page ads with 30 sec radio on a two station buy. PR with editorial on talkback
