Describe the brief from the client
The brief was to launch a new version of a favourite laundry detergent. This new liquid is more biodegradable and comes in a recyclable bottle.
The market is chic, fashion-conscious women. And the goal was to create an event, experience or installation (the client wasn’t concerned which) that generated maximum PR exposure and spread through social networking sites.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
Firstly, we had to convey the product’s new attributes – biodegradable liquid in a recyclable bottle – in a memorable but subtle way.
Secondly, we had to get fashion journalists, bloggers and couturiers to attend the launch – then to spread the message through social media.
To create a central installation, event, and collateral material that appealed to the fashion elite while following the ecological principles of the product itself.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
We transformed old Skip bottles into hundreds of water lilies, fish, dragonflies and seagulls. Then used them to create a unique installation in the country's leading shopping mall. We invited the fashion elite to the launch with a delicates washing bag, filled with re-usable, fashionable items and printed using eco-friendly standards.
At the event, all touch points dramatised our message of caring for your clothes - and nature - from the décor and food, to the hosts who were even accessorised with re-created bottles head and shoulder pieces. Guests left with a 100% cotton laundry bag as a gift.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
• By popular demand from both tenants and the public, the shopping mall doubled the installations' contract period – at no extra cost.
• Exposure extended across fashion, décor, lifestyle, social, design, and ecology websites and blogs.
• The country’s main morning TV show, did a 4-minute insert showcasing the installation.
• For every $1 of production, we delivered $4 in PR exposure.
• Sales increased by 79% in the 6 months from launch.
