Nicotinell — Unsmoke

If quitting’s hard, why not make it
sound a little easier?

Today, more than ever, smokers are feeling isolated by their habit. Being told to ‘quit’ wasn’t working on them, so instead we coined a new word and helped liberate them from their addiction.

We connected with their feeling of social isolation and showed we understood their situation across multiple channels arming them with tools and compelling reasons to unsmoke.
