Oh nice work! i love this style treatment for this ad. I feel it works but some parts cld have been clearer. like when the couple go nose to nose. are they quarrelling? Did the guy find a new family in the end?

It's done for Oglivy and Mather for Pave. An organisation that helps abused women. It's meant to be cryptic. Me and Adeline did one version too but with a different storyline.

haha theyre supposed to be kissing. oh the last bit is when she becomes isolated from her family. i hope after roy treats the layout it'll be clearer?

i'd love to see what you and adeline did! show, show. roy was really nice about me pushing timelines so far back, i feel so bad argh.

if it's kissing. then it makes more sense to emphasize the lips and happy expressions instead of the nose. And i think have to give more clues that it is her family coz there is no pre-frame for readers to link to. But hopefully the copy will help. Yeah Roy is nice. Will show after Roy puts in all the copy.
