Thailand's FDA strictly forbids all advertisers to claim any product benefit on TV. Our solution was to imply the product benefit by using a word with double meaning. We then turned those words into a hashtag to spread the campaign online.

The hashtag's wording comes from a classic Chinese series "The Legend of Condor Heroes", where the heroine is named "UEUNG YONG". The campaign was inspired by this series because PURIKU's key ingredient is imported from China.

"UEUNG" in Thai means "stunned" and "stunning". "YONG" is the first name of the female character. PeeNeeUeungLoeyYong means "Yong, I'm so stunned."

In Thailand's rural areas, over 20,000 children have to walk barefoot on a hot road full of gravels for more than 10 kilometres to their school every day.

Being aware of this problem, Tesco Lotus launched a CSR campaign called 'Bring Them to School'.

We reached people living in the city, who usually spend 7 hours a day on social media, via an internet film with the concept "Less is not an obstacle of giving" to make them aware of this problem and create a change by donating a pair of shoes.

Being a mother often comes with fear, concerns and doubts in their ability of raising a baby.

This campaign inspires and encourages new mothers to believe in their instincts, to believe in themselves and in their abilities, through the natural bonding between a mother and a baby - just through the sense of 'touch'.

OPPO challenged the smartphone industry by introducing the 'R5' in January 2015. With only 4.85mm of thickness, it officially became 'The World's Thinnest Smartphone'.

We dramatised the smartphone's unique feature by creating the world's thinnest media space ever: the columns in newspapers. While OPPO created the world's thinnest smartphone, we created the world's thinnest ad.
