A Moment of Zen
In order to tell Oracea's story quickly and capture physicians' attention, Echo Torre Lazur chose the striking image of a beta fish as the icon for the brand. This was done, in part, because the creature shares a striking blue and green pigment with the brand, but also because it lives in a soothing environment that represents the polar opposite of the condition. Let's not forget that the beta fish is also known as the Siamese fighting fish, so its strength can be associated with the power of the dosage.The ad also presents a double entendre: The school of red fish represents inflammation and the beta fish cutting through and around that school symbolizes a changing of condition. It's also hard not to see the red fish as the crowded field of dermatologists. With this ad, you can see that the beta has passed through that dense school of fish and is heading for calmer waters ahead. In that way, the subhead "Powerful change for the journey ahead" corresponds well with the visual.
