Last night at the OTC Marketing Awards, VCCP Health won the award for Best Press/Outdoor Campaign for their 2012 work for Jungle Formula from Omega Pharma.
The campaign consisted of four executions, all of which feature computer generated illustrations made out of insects to highlight different situations in which people might use the product. Three promote a new product developed specially for the UK called ‘Outdoor and Camping’. They cover camping and barbecues and include a tactical execution which ran before the Queen’s Jubilee. The fourth execution promotes the use of Jungle Formula on package holidays abroad and features a carafe and glasses. The executions were rotated according to the weather forecast in the UK.

Dan has been a copywriter for over five years, winding his way through academia and Med Ed before happily settling in advertising. Along the way, he’s picked up a PhD in neuroscience, multiple creative awards and a tendency to make weird faces when thinking.
Before VCCP Health, Dan worked at Woolley Pau and Publicis Life Brands on more brands and therapy areas than brevity allows. He likes cider and whimsy in equal amounts. And pointing.
