Cream's top campaigns of 2013

Every year over here at Cream we see an incredible amount of outstanding media campaigns and 2013 has been no different. Take a look at our top five from this year:

Real Beauty Sketches


Statistics show that only 4% of women actually feel beautiful. Dove's intention via this campaign was to make the remaining 96% feel the same way. An FBI-trained sketch artist was asked to draw women’s portraits according to their own descriptions. The artist, who had never seen the women before, initially relied on descriptions by strangers to create the portraits. He then sketched them again by listening to the women’s own descriptions of themselves. The two portraits looked entirely different. The campaign caused dove’s fan-base and social media platforms to go through the roof, it was shortlisted six times at the Festival of Media LatAm 2013 and won the ‘best engagement’ category. To see the full campaign click here.
