Tampax

Think Outside The Box

BRIEF

Tampons can come with a string of worries for those new to them. Tackle these fears head on and reassure young people that tampons can fit comfortably in their lives.

 

INSIGHT

59% of our audience struggled to get their head round using tampons the first time they opened a box – despite the enclosed instructions. 39% admitted to not even reading the instructions at all. And of those that did, only 3% found them reassuring.

IDEA

The instructions that come inside the tampon box are like a flat pack furniture guide. Not very comforting or inspiring for someone looking at it for the first time! What if they weren’t written by a medical copywriter, but by people our audience could actually relate to?

I was asked to deliver a small branded content campaign and flipped it into fundamentally evolving a P&G product – transforming Tampax instructions from science textbook into more a helpful comic strip that young people will actually want to read. We created video content mapping their creation, with the relatable Scarlett Moffatt as the face of our campaign and illustrator Asa Ariyoshi bringing the new instructions to life.
