CAMPAIGN DIRECT AWARDS 2003: Best Art Direction

SILVER AWARD Title: Baby Agency: Different Creative directors: Mark Martin, Chris Rickaby Art directors: Ian Millen, Stewart Allan, Carlo Reale Copywriter: Chris Rickaby Account manager: Clare Hampton Client: Sunderland NHS Marketing manager: Christine Jordan

At least ten different ideas were tested in focus groups comprising "at risk" mothers throughout the North East, who were usually from low-income households. "Baby" was by far the most successful as nearly all the respondents preferred seeing some sort of child image used in the campaign. It also received strong support from the midwives working with the mothers.
