Bringing a conference theme alive through a handout
An imagined article of the future that inspired today
The client came to us with a fantastic idea. They wanted a series of articles set five years in the future which pastiched those found in TIME magazine. These fictional articles would look back on how their new drug had changed the world.
A good copywriter can study a style and write to it. So we bought a stack of TIME magazines and got reading. One of the main differences between journalists and copywriters - and there are a few - is that journalists are independent scrutinisers, while copywriters are advocates. But not this time. To make our TIME pastiche believable, we made sure the writing sounded detached and impartial.
It was all in the dose
In marketing, they say everything counts. The Pradaxa success story provides a compelling example of how true this can be. BI’s decision to test and then provide the anticoagulant in two dose strengths – 110mg bid and 150mg bid – turned out to be a knockout blow to its competitor.
The articles looked great blown up and dotted around the conference venue and the delegates loved them.
