We used the locally well-known box and logo from the original design to conceal a subtle but significant design change which immediately and perfectly demonstrated the product benefit.

Client Brief Or Objective
Clavin is a hugely popular over-the-counter erectile erectile dysfunction remedy. Introduced in 1999, it has been the market leader in the Czech Republic since 2006, yet its customers are mostly over 40 years old. we were asked to use humour and refocus the product on a younger target audience.

Changing a blister pack is a massive production headache. The machines used to produce them are old, inflexible and very difficult to mess with. Nonetheless the stand-up pack was produced over a course of three months (and a lot of failed attempts) in a limited run of 500 packs. The packs were handed out to younger guys in Prague nightclubs who looked like they need a boost.

The packs have become a collectors item. Recipients of the pack mostly chose to keep in intact and during the month of September sales figures for the regular box spiked to an annual high of 5, 678 boxes.
