Describe the brief from the client
Although HTH is South Africa's biggest-selling pool care range, the market is becoming increasingly competitive. The brief from client was to create attention-grabbing posters at point-of-purchase to remind consumers about HTH products and their effectiveness.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
There is a perceived parity in the market. Consumers do not see much difference between pool care brands, and hence are unwilling to pay a premium for HTH. But in reality, because of the risk of germs and disease, there are good reasons to using tried-and-trusted pool sanitising products. We needed to remind consumers of these risks.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
Everyone knows the chemical symbol for water (H2O). We decided to show the molecular make up of a pool, showing not only the water molecules but the molecules of all the other undesirable substances that lurk within it. To maximize the visual impact of all the thousands of tiny molecules, we printed the posters large (A1).

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
Although the campaign has only recently launched, there has already been a significant increase in brand awareness.
