  • CLEAN + CLEARDuring Y1 the challenge was to rebrand Clean & Clear with a new strategy and understanding of their GenZ consumer—creating relevant content and drive sales. Part of the creative strategy was to build an asset library from quarterly shoots, which would allow the teams to develop 3-5 months of social content.
