ONE RAND FAMILY

INTEGRATED CAMPAIGN

To inspire South Africans to change their attitudes towards spending, we convinced a family to live for an entire month using only R1 coins (equivalent to 5p). We covered the family's day-to-day activities and spending, telling the story from their perspective in a 5 part mini-documentary and across social media.

MY ROLE

Society's biggest challenge was to find a way to make typically dry data engaging and provocative. My role was to attend every shoot day to gather insights and use them to craft compelling social media content. I also created shot lists for the photographers and was there to make sure they captured the right shot. By bringing the family's story alive on social media, we gave the audience something authentic and exciting to follow between episodes.​
