WORK:
Boots
"Show Them You Know Them"
Ogilvy & Mather's first piece of work for Boots is a sisterly affair. An evocative sequence covers parental squabbles, teenage love, and other notable milestones. Back in the present day, the sisters prove a taste in gifts only improves with age. The retailer itself plays a small but significant role. Various cosmetics feature thoroughout, emphasising the brand's enduring presence in its customers' lives.
