Each week, The Examiner showcases an advertising campaign by a local company.
Client: Avicena Group Inc.
Job: Introduce and drive sales of Nurigene Skin Care Regimen
Agency: Goodman Marketing Partners
Principals: Carolyn Goodman
Other clients: Autodesk, Education Finance Partners, KCSM-TV, KCSM-FM, Wells Fargo Bank
Creative team: Carolyn Goodman, creative director, copywriter; Leah Prahm, art director; Hollis Brush, production manager; Kara Miller, account director
The plan: The print campaign runs in MORE magazine (a publication specifically targeted to women older than 40) through spring 2008, plus the results of a MORE Reader Panel product trial/survey will be exploited in the March 2008 issue.
The theme: Take the Nurigene 28-day skin care challenge, and then see and feel the difference for yourself.
The concept: Scientific facts were leveraged together with the use of a professional model who had been using the Nurigene Skin Care Regimen for six months prior to tell a complete story about the product and its benefits to women over 40.

What drove your development of the concept? While gleaning product input from the client, we learned that the results of an eight-week clinical trial had been unusually positive. We leveraged this finding by recommending that the client bundle their products together and position it as a “skin care regimen” and challenge women to “see the difference for themselves.”
Working on next: Direct mail, online and product sampling programs.
