The team that dreamed this one up are Wickes DIY, Skin Cancer Charity Skcin and agency Iris. The idea is to raise skin cancer awareness in the construction industry through a new product, Tradesman's Suncream.
There's a wonderful insight behind this, combining a fact with a bit of target-group psychology:
Construction workers are particularly high-risk for skin cancer, but many don't use suncream because they're afraid of their mates taking the mick.
The solution is beautifully simple: suncream in paint pots , with variants Apprentice White, Plasterer's Pink and Brickie's Bronze.
Stores were used for events and UV skin checks.
It's a winning combination of ingredients: clever insight, a smart idea that's more than communication - and ultimately does good.
But unfortunately, it's now too late to collect a free pot from your local store: Summer's over.
