At its core we believe it is a perfectly formed public relations campaign – from conception of the idea, to the impact it delivers. It represents a modern take on communications combining creativity and the art of PR. It is a call out to the creatives of the world to show public relations has some of the most interesting challenges. It demonstrates that a campaign that sets out to change law can be ‘super-powered’ though creativity.”
