Agency: Leo Burnett
Role: Concept & Art Direction
I created this ad while I was working at Leo Burnett in 2010. Originally intended for my personal portfolio, it caught the attention of the Chief Creative Officer and was subsequently published as a print ad in a small campaign.
After the ad was released online in July 2011, it caused a bit of a stir for being the first feminine hygiene ad to ever feature blood.
