Delivering fresh creative thinking for Burt's Bees.

Client: Burt’s BeesCreator: Windsong Productions

The challenge

Despite the popularity of Burt’s Bees range of lip balms and other natural products, awareness of their consciously crafted, sustainably made toothpaste was low.

Balancing the products’ benefits was key for the brand. They needed a digital campaign that would convince existing naturals consumers, as well as naturals intenders, that their toothpaste is both ‘good for your smile’ and ‘good for the world’. That it delivers all the whitening and cleaning power of regular toothpaste with ingredients you can trust and no animal testing.

The approach

Through Genero, Burt’s Bees commissioned California based production company Windsong Productions. Windsong developed an existing idea, focusing heavily on the brand elements of Burt’s Bees and offering unique ways of incorporating the brand’s look to produce a sustainable, friendly and fresh aesthetic.

The final videos and images combine vibrant set design, creative blue screen work, refreshing green imagery, clever animations and positive human interactions all to create a final outcome which highlights Burt’s Bees brand proposition and the key product benefits.
