Credits & Description

To show the hydrating effects of the all-new Intense Hydration face care line from Burt's Bees, we re-imagined the typical "Before & After" demonstration by constructing a billboard using thousands of coupons.
Then we let the power of curiosity take it from there.

New line: Intense Hydration (five skin moisturizing products)
Execution: “A Natural Before and After.” 1:35 online video
One recent early morning, an 11’ x 6’ billboard for the as-yet unannounced Intense Hydration line went up across from a Minneapolis farmers’ market—its image, of a woman with radiant skin (the “after”), covered up by 1300 $3-off coupons, face down, their backs creating a composite image of the same woman’s face, but “dry and flaky” (the “before”).
Over the day, as passers-by tore off the coupons one by one, time lapse photography turned the entire process into a 40-second, reimagined (and oddly pixelated!) before-and-after video demo.
