Featured Work

Description: > Divigel®, an estradiol gel for relieving moderate to severe hot flashes due to menopause, has been marketed by Upsher-Smith Laboratories for several years, but has had trouble differentiating itself from its competitors. This rebranding attempts to appeal to patient preference and lifestyle fit.

Creative/account team: Account team: Rich Angelini, Executive Creative Director Emily Peterson, Senior Copywriter Kaitlyn Quealy, Associate Art Director Maggie Patry, Account Director

Why this product is special: We didn’t just update the look and feel of the brand—we created a whole new identity for Divigel® using relaxing, spa-like imagery to position it with personal care. The sophisticated, elegant new look visually captures the cooling relief of the gel.
