The brief to Clemenger BBDO was to find a disruptive way to refresh, modernise and make famous the once iconic Australian winter brand. To unlock the pitch, qualitative research was undertaken by Clemenger BBDO to get to the heart of what modern parents desire in a cold and flu brand. The Demazin brand campaign will air in winter 2020.
