Daprinol: Ruler


In Dominican Republic, a woman's menstruating cycle is called many different names. The most common ones used are ones like "La Regla", meaning "The Rule", "La Luna" meaning "The Moon", and "El Periodo", meaning simply "The Period". This custom comes from a taboo that many Dominicans have with periods, associating them with something foul and refuse to acknowledge this time as a completely natural process.

Our product, Daprinol, is a medicine used to relieve mentrual pain. For the brands launch, we have created a campaign that uses these common names as an opportunity to turn them into characters that exemplify the pain caused by the presence of menstruation, and present Daprinol as the go-to product to relieve that type of pain.

No matter what you call it, if it hurts, DAPRINOL.

Smh...This is a typical example how a bad art direction kills an idea.
