You Mean You Don't Go Shopping to Heal?
Check out "Meet the Denialers" for Mackenzie Investments. Put together by Lowe Roche, Toronto, it tells the story of "a family of four that spends like fourteen."
Creative is spread across print and online without losing the tune: that of a strangely relatable fable. The campaign does a nice job of positioning an investment firm as a natural option for cash-burning families.
But what really won us was the print ad (scroll down with arrows). Engaging! Attractive! Unafraid of the written word! (Though it could have used a paragraph break or two. And maybe more sticky-outy bold text?)
Anyway, a campaign this promising is too rare. Would be nice to see the characters develop across 2008. Mackenzie, do you know a good thing when you see one? Can you hold on?
