It is now a really well established brand. The campaign and the product have both exceeded the clientâs expectations. One of the key elements in the success was the fact that we were involved with the project from inception to the launch of the brand, then right through to the design of the packaging, advertising and point of sale activity. The ability to work so closely with the client was every bit as important as the creativity we were able to bring to the campaign.
