denkwerk launches first TV campaign for BABOR

"We know that relevant, channel-specific content is a key success factor for achieving our very ambitious KPIs within the consumer journey. So it's even nicer that our new ampoules achieve visible skin results and that we can therefore include before/after (moving) pictures of the very satisfied consumers in our campaign."

Clear, modern, bright: This is how the style of the films should be later. To create this look, denkwerk brought experienced reinforcement from the beauty segment onto the set in the form of Munich director Florian Seidel. Eike Rieche, another beauty expert from Hamburg, was in charge of the camera. The result of the West-South-North collaboration can be seen in Germany on TV and online since April 4, 2022. The campaign will also be present in the USA and China – mainly in digital channels.

"We explicitly didn't want a campaign with the typical 3-D demos and beautifully blow-dried before-and-after effects. Everything we see happened exactly the same way. The key is authenticity."

The Düsseldorf agency WAVEMAKER is responsible for the media placement of the BABOR spots. As part of an integrated full-funnel strategy, the campaign will be played out across all relevant video channels. The eye-catching primetime TV appearance will be extended via YouTube, social media and display.

BABOR: The first TV and moving image campaign in the company's history has now been conceived and produced by denkwerk.
