Ad Council: Prediabetes Year 1

Agency: Ogilvy & Mather NY


86 million Americans are affected by prediabetes. And despite this huge number, awareness of this public health crisis was negligible. Our task was to change that but in a very approachable, non-scary kind of way. In order to do that however, we needed people to take a simple test. Not a simple task.


Instead of creating a standard TV spot to raise awareness around the test (although we did some of those too), we built the actual risk test into a direct response TV spot, so every viewer would know if they had prediabetes – in real time. The project resulted in a Cannes Lion.

Ad Council: Prediabetes Year 2

After a highly successful launch, we were asked to tackle the problem for a second year.

This time we looked to common online behaviour where our target spends hundreds of minutes per year watching videos of cute animals doing (insert literally anything here.)  So we created some of those videos ourselves - and included the test within.

To date, the work has led to over 500k test completions and has garnered nearly 9 million views.
