"A BLAST of h YdrATIoN"
Up against a big spending, category dominant competitor and
consumers skeptical of higher blade counts, Schick set out to
launch their new Hydro razor. Global research had shown that
guys wanted more from their shave, going beyond just removing
hair to caring for their skin in the process. With this insight, Schick
developed and launched Hydro with an unexpected blast of hydration. The launch far exceeded sales and share goals, and the
insightful positioning resulted in an unusually high brand bonding
score for a new brand with a small presence.

"LET'S BUILd A SmAr TEr PLANET"
As IBM reached its Centennial, ensuring strong results was essential,
so the task for communications was to Turn Mindshare into Market
Share. IBM‘s Smarter Planet Agenda is a true example of a company’s strategic direction in perfect alignment with its marketing,
and now that agenda needed to become tangible and actionable: we needed to show The Smarter Planet is Now. Presenting
this unified vision across every channel and touch-point, we step-changed perceptions and drove a 37% increase in revenue, with
a campaign that paid back media dollars 10x in profit.
