Describe the brief from the client
With well over 2.2m cases a year, prostate cancer is the leading form of cancer affecting men in the US.

When detected at an early stage, the cancer is 90% curable through surgery or radiation. If untreated, prostate cancer cells can spread to other parts of the body, producing secondary tumours.

With very few to no symptoms in the early stages, hundreds of thousands of cases go undetected throughout the country. When finally diagnosed, it is often too late, which is why regular testing is imperative amongst those 40+.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
The major problem lies in getting through to those unwilling to talk about the cancer. Negative stigmas around the prostate exam have resulted in men refusing to discuss the disease.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
Our solution to the problem: Branko, the Prostate Czech.

When it came to design, we had the tough task of creating a look/feel that brought Branko to life. While the campaign was meant to be comedic, it was also important to maintain Branko’s no-nonsense, stern demeanour.

The Prostate Czech colour pallet combined the colours of the Czech flag, with the colours of the Prostate Cancer Foundation. The typefaces used throughout the campaign had to maintain an Eastern European feel, but still remain legible to an English-speaking audience.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
From the Wall Street Journal, to major medical magazines, Branko was a hit. In its first month alone, Branko helped increase traffic to the Prostate Cancer Foundation website by over 40%.
