Water Communications designs campaign for Dr Batra's

MUMBAI: Water Communications recently unveiled a new campaign for Dr Batra’s based on the concept of ‘live life to the fullest’. Additionally, the campaign also sought to dispel the perception that the brand was just a hair and skin specialist.

Calibrating the message to the choice of media, the print campaign explored a more serious and sophisticated delivery and message, focussing more on exploding the myth that Dr. Batra’s was just about hair and skin. The central headline message boldly dominated the layout and got straight to the core message, albeit in a sophisticated manner. It was smartly complemented by the equally dominant visual of a doctor, thereby lending it plenty of subliminal credibility.

The headline-visual combination having set the context, the copy then goes on to explain that Dr. Batra’s has treated lakhs of patients for over 120 medical conditions, far beyond the pale of hair and skin. Lifestyle diseases, women’s health issues, children’s diseases… it gradually skews towards the other core message: Dr. Batra’s enables you to live life to the fullest.

Deft touches like the little girl with ice cream (explaining how she used to get teased about her colds, but now she can eat all the ice cream she wants), or the middle-aged woman with her confidence and beauty queen ‘tiara’ (who is happy that several issues were sorted out for her), or the professional looking executive in a suit (talking about stress)… leave the viewer being able to empathise and associate with the TVC.

The ads take the rhetoric beyond skin problems and hair loss to the entire spectrum of problems like cold, obesity and stress among others. Reinforcing that the victims could be people of any age group – a child, a young adult, a working professional or an ageing parent.

Water Communications director Vandana Sethhi said, “Today, most often, it isn’t the complex problems but basic health issues faced by an individual in everyday life that deprive them the opportunity of living life to the fullest. Dr Batra’s speciality clinics offer solutions to these and many more health problems that are not only safe but also natural."
