MSD case study image

Purple was tasked with revitalising the core campaign concept for MSD UK’s Elocon psoriasis skin cream and ointment. Purple put its finger on the ‘once daily’ key competitive claim, using a simple, alliterative line and a new photographic focus to showcase the product benefit to healthcare practitioners.
