Engage Pocketful O’stories 2.0

Online swiping is a slippery slope. You know what’s great?


To think beyond the usual digital campaign framework and create a powerful brand asset with longer shelf life. We decided to build a deep emotional connect instead of offering stereotypical thirst trap visuals, purely functional USPs or being blatantly sales driven. So instead of the usual DVC + media route, we co-wrote a book with our Engage fans.
