P&G has developed smaller “compacted” bottles for its detergent brands like Ariel and ACE. The way it works to achieve the same cleaning performance is very simple: formulas include more active ingredients and with less products used, they clean perfectly. The package is smaller but only that! In Latin America, people are not used to compacted detergents; they see a smaller packaging that is more expensive that their current detergent and they don’t want to buy it because they feel “cheated”. They like abundance and things that come in large quantities.

They don’t want to put less detergent in their loads, because they think it is not enough and the stains won’t go away. They need to be told that using less is perfectly fine, and to be reassured. The challenge is to change habits and to convince people that there is no difference in performance (perfect cleanliness and same amount of shirts can be cleaned) between the bigger and smaller package. Compaction does not mean “less for less” but “less for better”


In order to change the habits of Latin American countries, create a convincing poster that tells an engaging story in order to reassure buyers about compacted detergents, and explain the no-difference/equivalence versus non-compacted products. Your poster should bring to life the fact that using less product will deliver the same great cleanliness and yields exactly the same. 

Imagine you’re talking to your friend. You’ve tried compacted detergent – you used less product in your laundry loads and you’ve noticed the results are as good as when you were using a bigger diluted dose. You want to tell your friend about it because she always buys the big bottle/box, and she thinks putting more detergent in the washing machine will clean more!

How can you visualize the “no-difference/equivalence” idea in a poster? And then imagine yourself talking to her; what will you say to convince her? 

We would like you to create more than just a poster! It’s a poster and the elements of speech that will convince people. So your entry should be made up of:

  • a visual with a tagline 
  • the story to go with it.

We don’t want you to explain why compaction is better. For instance, a poster that explains that compacted formats are better for the planet because they consume less plastic is NOT what we’re looking for. Instead, you shall focus on bringing to life the fact that compacted formats offer the same as big formats. Your poster is aimed at reassuring people and convincing them.

Your ideas will help Ariel and ACE to create a communication directed at women in Latin America in order to change their habits so that they choose compacted detergents. When looking at your poster, a woman should think: “So I understand the equivalence between the compacted format and the diluted one, and the compacted one actually delivers the same performance and yields the same! My clothes will be clean and fresh, exactly as I want them to be! Now I am reassured about compacted formats and I will buy them.”




A bad idea for this contest would be an idea around the fact that compacted format is sustainable and that for this reason people should buy it. This is not what this brief is about.
