Harnessing the power of video, we collaborated with PURICA to create captivating video content for their advertising campaigns, website, and social channels.



Our comprehensive approach included scripting, casting, filming, and producing high-quality ads tailored to specific audiences. We also featured PURICA’s founder, Jason Watkin, in a revealing Q&A and John Holliday in an informative segment debunking mushroom myths.

 

Additionally, we partnered with 25 influencers to generate engaging user-generated content (UGC), effectively promoting PURICA’s mushroom products and their new sleep support product.

OUR PARTNERSHIP GOES BEYOND ADVERTISING

We supported the launch of the campaign landing page with precision, starting from wire-framing to the final design and copywriting.

 

Our focus was on creating an engaging user experience that highlighted UVic’s global impact, optimizing every element to ensure maximum effectiveness but also address the three different target audiences. This landing page is not just a gateway; it’s a showcase of UVic’s commitment to academic excellence and international collaboration, designed to convert interest into action.
