esso - Trees of time and place
We produced a nationwide poster and leaflet campaign for Esso in conjunction with Samantha Fulton (then at Ketchum PR) to support multiple events. The brief was to educate children (and their parents) about the importance of supporting the environment. The resulting campaign was Esso’s most succesful print campaign to date and went into several additional print runs to meet demand.
