FOR DUMMIES


Those bright yellow books that teach you everything from Excel to Ghost Hunting. I did concept and copywriting on this campaign for Texas Creative Portfolio 3. This campaign was done in tandem with Texas Media and Analytics, whose media plan got us started!

Insight: Learning how to be an adult is hard to do on your own.

Strategy: Stop Failing Life.

The laundry list of things you should have learned in school is way too long, and now you’re 23 and barely making it. But it’s not your fault you’re dumb; it’s the system that’s dumb. The A’s you got in school don’t translate to a successful life.

For Dummies is prepared to take you by the hand and lead you to competence, step by step. We’re not leaving until you’re prepared to pass the Test of Life.
