The cardiovascular patient’s GP is the healthcare professional best placed to monitor this patient’s progress. However, whilst Cardiologists will generally advocate for 12 months duration of therapy with Brilinta due to the clinical benefits this offers, GPs may not be fully aware of those yet are charged with the ongoing management of that patient.
Our campaign aims to show just how fragile their post Acute Coronary Syndrome (usually heart attack) patient is, even if they look and feel well – their next heart attack could be just around the corner.
So whilst GPs may not be the initiators of Brilinta, they are the ones responsible for the ongoing management of these patients, and can help support the patient to complete their intended duration of therapy. To assist in this we have armed them with the knowledge to convince their patients of just how important it is that they complete the full 12-month course. To help with this important job, we also created a patient web page to help them and their family to understand what their doctor is telling them.

The Pharmacist is in a unique role in that they are often the healthcare professional to first uncover whether a patient has stopped taking any of their medications. This campaign aimed to recruit Pharmacists into the support team of helping keep their cardiovascular customers on Brilinta for the full 12 months.
Along with an education campaign for the pharmacist, we also provided them with resources they could give to their customers that encouraged staying on treatment. These resources included informative ‘bag stuffers’ to be included with their customer’s prescriptions and a 12 month fridge magnet that allowed people to keep track of their adherence to treatment.

The phasing out a successful psoriasis treatment (Daivonex) for a newer and better one (Daivobet) is a nervous time for everyone. Patients will worry about losing the thing that worked for them, doctors and pharmacists worry about how to tell their patents that their medication is being discontinued and Leo Pharmaceuticals worry about losing their loyal users.
The good news for everyone is that the newer treatment, Daivobet, is so much better and faster acting than the one it was replacing.

NZMI is a small but successful medical scanning business. Their experience and business model puts them at the very top of the Nuclear Imaging market, however, increased completion in this field has meant that if they want to remain at the top they needed their brand to clearly show why they were the best.
A top to bottom rebrand gave NZMI a look that spoke of clinical professionalism and experience. Mailers and leave pieces highlighted the benefits of nuclear imaging the different clinical applications. Added to this, NZME invested in patient resources such as a patient friendly website and patient brochures that guided patients through the process and helped put them at ease.

There are many patients who could benefit from Avastin, however weighing up the pros and cons of treatment can require a fair amount of thought and discussion.
Ensuring the information was presented in a relevant and respectful way resulted in this unique kiwi designed booklet. It can be used by a specialist as an aid for discussion and then as a take home tool for patients to do the thinking in their own space and time.

Flu can be anywhere.
Can it? How would you know? After all, the influenza virus is invisible to the naked eye. It’s hard to imagine something invisible ‘being’ anywhere.
But what if it wasn’t invisible. What if the influenza virus was VERY visible? Then we’d take notice.

Conferences are a great opportunity to engage with customers you don’t often see - as long as you have something that interests them. So when bioCSL challenged us to dress their stand for the GPCME, INSIGHT came up with a 3D stand (never done before in New Zealand).
It featured amazing 3D images of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, plus embedded answers to a bioCSL product quiz within the artwork to stimulate viewer engagement with the bioCSL brands.

“Bring a partner of friend along to your appointment.” This bit of practical advice is typically given by an oncology clinic before they tell someone they have cancer.
This is because the doctor knows that their patient will hear nothing after the word ‘Cancer’. The partner or friend? They are there to do the listening for them.
Our ads aim to show the reality of a cancer diagnosis from the view of the patient, that is, big, confusing and scary. However, when the patient is ready they can go to cancerINFO.co.nz to find out more about certain cancers and some of the treatments available to them.

Pharmacy: The shelves of your average chemist are a crowded place. We helped Thompson’s really stand out in the natural supplements aisle with packaging designs that reached out to the target market, as well as in-store collateral and items for window displays.
Targeted Tourist Trade: Tourists, especially those from China and Korea, are big buyers of nutritional products (vitamins, supplements etc). Our in-store campaign featured imagery linking the source of the ingredients - the water, air and land, to the Thompson’s brand and product range.
We also used our specialist translation partners to help create accurate and culturally meaningful copy in both Chinese and Korean.

For us, awards are not just about a certificate for the wall, it's a benchmarking exercise to ensure we are operating at a best-in-class level - and that we are approaching every challenge with a level of fresh creativity.
Experience has shown us that creativity is an essential element in the changing of beliefs and behaviour.
How do you convince people that even though Type 2 Diabetes may not happen suddenly, it should still be treated with the same seriousness and respect that we give to immediate dangers?
This tongue-in-cheek campaign for Diabetes New Zealand brought forward the negative impacts of poor eating and exercise as if the dangers were immediate - to highlight the fact that the danger is real.
Text and website responses, the main measures of success, exceeded all expectations.

Shingles will affect 1 in 3 people in their lives, and anyone who has ever had chickenpox (and most of us have) is at risk. Shingles is a terrible thing to get; it is very painful, unsightly and can hang around for months. Zostavax is seen as the best way for people 50 and over to protect themselves.
Our campaign to both healthcare professionals and consumers highlighted the fact that most people are harbouring the virus. All immunisation targets were exceeded within the first six months of the campaign.

A special focus of the 2015 influenza campaign was to target youth. 18-25 year olds are under represented in immunisation statistics, yet their potential for exposure to the virus is thought to be much greater than the general population.
Our youth campaign saw posters go up in universities around the country accompanied by ads on student radio stations.

In 2014 the rotavirus vaccine RotaTeq, was added to the infant immunisation schedule. The vaccine is administered in three doses and maximum effectiveness is reliant on the precise timings of each dose.
The launch campaign to doctors, nurses, Plunket and parents carried the messages of protection from rotavirus as well as the importance of getting all three doses on time. Plunket nurses were also issued with an information pack containing a calendar device (dosage wheel) that worked out the dates for each immunisation appointment.

The strategy behind this Global Award winning campaign positioned the product as only part of ADHD treatment. We communicated to doctors that there is no ‘magic pill’ and kids need to learn how to cope without medication, with the eventual goal of not needing medication at all. This strategy rewarded the client with an unprecedented turnaround in sales over the competing brand.

Gardasil is best known as the cervical cancer vaccine. It’s less well known for its ability to protect against genital warts in both male and females. Teenage boys have a lot to benefit from the Gardasil vaccine, because while many of life's lessons are learned the ‘hard way’, genital warts should not be one of them.

Influenza passes easily from one person to the next. This campaign shows us that the influenza vaccine is the only real way to avoid getting – or giving – influenza.
In 2013 this campaign proved itself to be the most successful annual immunisation drive ever, reaching a record number of 1.25 million people vaccinated. This impressive number was reached again in 2014.

Communications to specialists (such as oncologists) can often contain highly complex messaging. Many people assume that all specialists require is the data, however, our experience has shown that if we creatively engage them, they respond much better to our messaging. After all, medical people are still just people at the end of the day.
