Describe the brief from the client
Create a banner campaign for a younger target audience, which still conveys that Thomapyrin is the best cure for any kind of headache, but in a playful and innovative way.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
As one of the oldest pain medicines in Germany, Thomapyrin mainly appeals to a more mature target audience. One of the main challenges of this campaign was to refresh the brand image to attract a younger target group.

The difficulty of this task is that the target audience is known to be very quick to close popup banners with the x button in the upper right corner. Additionally, conventional banner ads –especially in the pharmaceutical sector – seem to have little or no appeal to younger audiences.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
We created beautiful op-art banners with a purposeful side effect: they create a slight headache just by looking at them.
Once the viewer clicks to close the banner, the advertising message is displayed. Clicking in the upper right corner triggers the Thomapyrin tablet, which dissolves and causes the banner and the headache to disappear.

With this approach, we are turning the target’s reluctance to view the ad into the ad itself. In an entertaining and disarming way, the ad message is conveyed when the viewer tries to avoid yet another banner ad.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
During the campaign, traffic on the Thomapyrin website has increased by 10%. Due to the positive feedback on the market and within the advertising community, a second launch of the banner campaign is planned for the second half of the year.
