I don't quite understand the product. I'm guessing it's some sort of small pills.

On the other hand copy is really repetitive. Putting a whale simbolizes the concept of big. You don't need to explain that anymore or that is though to swallow, which is a direct consequence.

(Sorry for the miss spellings, english is not my mother language either)

I like the brief style.but the text composition is hard for consumers to read.

i think the text's orientation is meant to be like this coz it gives the feeling that its hard to swallow when it takes you a long time to read it, which makes the campaign works better... i like it and i find it good

Here's another observation for you. White text on light blue background, *outside* your logo? *Might* just be ignored. I see this as a pill-necker and I see the big hard-to-swallow tablet with the instructions that it's hard to swallow.

All that's left to look at is the product name.

I don't want whale pills.

And by the time I make the connection between the big pills and the product name, I've turned the page, or left the room, or driven past, because everyone knows that the small print under a pharma logo/ad is from legal.

So, I call SCAM on this, also because there's no legal small print, or (contra)indication info as to what the product is for.

Its a bit in Green Peace territory with the "Don't eat whales message"
