Healthcare brand Infinitus and Ogilvy Shanghai encourage consumers to believe in themselves

Infinitus Print Ad_CHEN Jin.jpgHealthcare brand Infinitus, part of Chinese food manufacturer Lee Kum Kee Health Product Group, has teamed up with Ogilvy & Mather Shanghai to launch their first brand campaign, which comprises of a 15-second TV spot and a set of three print ads (pictured) and online microfilms that promote Infinitus' philosophy of nurturing life through herbal healthcare.


The three online microfilms feature real stories of Chinese individuals who defy all odds to achieve their goals by sheer will and a belief in their own unlimited potential. In one of the microfilms, "I persist, I believe," the main character Chen Jin is a 50-year-old farmer who was unable to walk until he was six years old. Even with a physical disability at a young age, Chen started training for and running marathons at the age of 42. Under such dire physical and environmental circumstances, Chen was undeterred and placed fifth at the Weihai International Triathlon in 2011 - an achievement only made possible by his perseverance and belief in himself.

"Whether it's improving a person's health or changing their own future, we believe the greatest source of strength comes from within. We were so moved by these three stories of everyday individuals mentally and physically struggling to overcome challenges that we decided to portray them as microfilms to share and engage with the world. Through an emotional storytelling, Ogilvy's done a phenomenal job at helping us spread the herbal health culture and raise awareness of our brand."


Managing Director of Ogilvy & Mather Shanghai, Yuan Yong, said, "It's becoming ever so common to use microfilms in brand marketing, but Infinitus tactfully points out their company philosophy by highlighting the inspirational stories of ordinary people in their late 30's and 40's who face the choice of balancing work and money with their health. We hope that consumers facing this very same challenge will find their inner strength for better health."
