Describe the brief from the client
The client needed to boost the brand amongst functional coffee drinkers, and establish itself as the coffee that really wakes you up.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
We needed to jolt the viewer out of their normal routine, and a purely rational approach would not be enough. We needed to think of something that didn’t just let them know that they should drink Diamond Coffee when they’re sleepy, but would make them feel it.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
The idea was to really make the viewer feel the need for a coffee, so we designed an ad that induces sleepiness. Using a simple trick of the eye built into scenarios associated with becoming sleepy, we targeted both their reason and their senses.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
Not only did sales increase more than the same period last year, but people were asking for copies of the ad to send to friends to try for themselves. Fortunately, no increase in sleep-related accidents were recorded (that we know of).
