Describe the challenges and key objectives
The camera detects 16 faces under any condition. It is a first for a camera in a mobile phone. The challenge was in presenting Face Detection in a new light.

Describe the brief from the client
LG wanted to promote its mobile phone, Viewty Smart by highlighting the face detection feature in the camera.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
Since Face Detection is not a new feature in cameras we needed to find a surprising way of presenting the same. So each ad in the campaign featured 16 faces made by people and elements around them.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The ads enticed viewers into finding the 16 faces as some of them were more cryptic than others. Thus making sure people spent more time with the idea.
