Campaign Direct Awards 2006: Best Art Direction

WINNER Project: CSI: New York Agency: 20:20 London Creative director: Peter Riley Art directors: Dean Woodhouse, Hugo Bierschenk Copywriter: Peter Riley Client: five

CSI: New York is the grittier brother of the TV drama CSI. Five wanted to attract as big an audience as possible.

20:20 decided the best approach was to fool consumers into thinking they would become the next victim of the "Carbon Copy Killer".

A dossier, purportedly from CSI, was sent to consumers. It explained that the killer only murdered people with one name - that of the recipient. It added that he e-mailed his victims before striking. An e-mail then arrived giving the launch date of CSI: New York.

The campaign attracted one million extra viewers and generated widespread media coverage.
