Pillcase – Prison

Agency Network: 
April 2018
First Call: Pillcase – Prison


A common symbol of prescription medication in the U.S. is the plastic pill case. In these ads, a pill case is CGI-rendered into a metaphor for the grim reality of opioid addiction. The renderings are exquisitely detailed, featuring unique characters and environments. Each character is hyper-realistic with details and features that suggest an independent backstory. These characters trapped inside pill cases are eye-catching and alarming — a powerful symbol of the human cost of the opioid epidemic.
