Describe the brief from the client
Educate Japanese consumers to the threat of cybercrimes.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
The biggest issue of generating cybercrime awareness is that it is not visible. Therefore, people are not normally aware that it could be taking place. We were challenged to create a face for this invisible terror.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
We printed copy using words full of evil intentions over the cybercriminal's face using colorless varnish.
We made these terrifying messages transparently visible and showed that the threat is always there, even though invisible.
We communicated the fact that threats can be in several forms by using different typographies for our robber, stalker and fraudster versions.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
Our posters, placed at various touch-points, generated considerable awareness of the invisible threat of cybercrime. Consumers demonstrated their greater understanding by purchasing the product, helping Norton regain the No.1 sales position for the first time in 3 yrs. The campaign itself will also be adapted to run across Asia.
