Blowing in The Wind

Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Outdoor Advertising / Poster Advertising/Enhanced Posters / 2015

In early 2014, Swedish pharmacy chain Apotek Hjärtat launched a new line of hair care products under the name Apolosophy. Premium beauty products were not previously promoted by pharmacies in Sweden. To capture the public's attention and show them that Apolosophy brings hair to life, Åkestam Holst fitted digital screens on subway platforms with ultrasonic sensors that reacted to trains arriving at the station. The resulting reactive ad gave the illusion of a woman's hair blowing in the wind. To help spread the campaign message outside the train station, the agency released a short online movie showcasing the outdoor solution and people's reactions. The movie has over 2.9 million unique views in 190 countries. The campaign saw a huge increase in Apolosophy sales and brand awareness.
