Summary of the Campaign
Increase the market share of a brand that already owns 70% of the market, but is in a stagnant category.
Create new uses for the product, which stopped being just a simple bandage to become a fashion accessory. This resulted in a fashion Band-Aid® associated to the most prominent name in the Brazilian fashion market: Band-Aid® by Alexandre Herchcovitch. And US market: Cynthia Rowley.

The Situation
The challenge was increase the market share of a brand that already owns 70% of the market, but is in a stagnant category.

The Goal
Turning an adhesive bandage into an object of desire.

The Strategy
We invited two icons of the fashion world for our project.
In Brazil, Alexandre Herchcovitch, one of the biggest names in the Brazilian Fashion Scene.
In the U.S. the super-famous fashion designer Cynthhia Rowley.

Two special series of band-aid one in each country, with prints signed by these fashion icons.
The special series of Band-Aid were lauched in major fashion events in São Paulo and New York.
Which attracted the attention of the world media.
They quickly became topic of conversation in many different places and sold out in both countries.

Documented Results
The appraisal of articles that talked about Band-Aid® by Alexandre Herchcovitch surpassed the mark of U$ 1.6 million (more than 70 vehicles).
It was the first product from J&J Brazil to be featured in the New York Times and Marie Claire from Japan.
