A picture paints...

A picture, they say, is worth a thousand words, yet, we work in what purports to be a very copy-based arm of the ad industry
Hereís a campaign that uses the tougher half of the problem/solution equation to dramatise the solution. Itís the picture that tells the story. Weíve all had our fill of those quality-of-life (QoL) shots with happy, smiling patients, all hillwalking, break-dancing, bungee jumping, free fall parachuting or whatever. With these wonderfully detailed photographs of hands (others in the campaign include handling coins, doing up buttons, writing, handling delicate plants, marking a ballot paper), we get all the patient benefits of improved QoL plus the product benefits of relief from the symptoms of Parkinsonís in one simple communication. It makes the punning baseline superfluous. But the great pleasure in these photographs is their honesty. No ëhand artistsí here, instead thereís bitten nails, wisps of hair, liver spots, warts and all ñ these are real people. This unromanticised vision of patients informs the honesty and reality of the product message.
