When a psychologist, sociologist and philosopher tell three ad agencies what we need to live well, the results are an ad campaign Selling Virtues.


Autumn 2019


We’re going to repurpose a stack of advertising, with help from some of the greatest minds, who truly understand the deeper needs of human beings. We’ll ask them "what do we need to live well, in contrast to what advertising often tells us?", then we’ll pair them with the big and glossy, powerful and talented advertising agencies to execute a fun and energetic print campaign for some of the good stuff that we do need, on over 35 bus shelters across Greater Manchester.

To top it off we’ll host a panel conversation with all involved to explore the campaign content and talk about the ethical line of advertising from design, psychological, sociological and philosophical perspectives.
