FINDING A COOL NICHE

“Tame Your Blade” consumer ad campaign concept created for Ryan Partnership. When it comes to shaving, most shaving creams and gels are sold with razors as part of a system. But what do you do when your shaving gel stands alone on the shelf? To break through, I created a new story by re-launching Edge as the shaving gel that worked with all blades. Promoted as a performance upgrade that guarded against the harshness of a cold steel blade, Edge became the coolest accessory in the medicine cabinet. This playful gel image also became a key interactive device in other ads and online banners.    CLICK TO SEE THE...

GOOD MORNING GORGEOUS Nov03

GOOD MORNING GORGEOUS

“Good Morning Gorgeous” consumer ad campaign concept created for Ryan Partnership. Making the Skintimate brand relevant to teenage girls and young women involved the development of many different looks and messages. The inspiration behind this winning concept was based on the thoughts that ran through a young woman’s mind while shaving her legs. Seeing how her day might turn out if she kept her legs soft and smooth was very appealing when tested.    CLICK TO SEE THE CONCEPT  CONSUMER AD CAMPAIGN CONCEPT

GOING HANDS ON Feb19

GOING HANDS ON

“XBOX 360 Winter Event” created for Wunderman. The question was how to bring fun and excitement to a booth that was outside, on a ski hill with no electricity to power an XBOX 360 gaming system. My concept was to freeze actual XBOX 360 games inside large blocks of ice. The resulting event attracted thousands of people who lined up for their chance to win. To play, they simply rubbed their hands on the ice to melt the block and win the games hidden inside. Needless to say, it took a lot of people to participate and it quickly became a cool fan favorite with skiers and XBOX fans alike.   Other events that...

“A Good Night’s Sleep Lasts All Day Long” consumer magazine print ad created for MSI. More than just a good night’s rest, we elevated the mattress conversation to be about “comfort”.
