Cocaine is now South America’s most emblematic product.

ISSUE

While $2.5 trillion has been spent on the War on Drugs, global consumption of cocaine has continued to grow. So long as there is a demand, cocaine will be manufactured and distributed, regardless of its enormous cost to people and the planet.

Despite the surge in public consciousness around the products we consume, cocaine’s culture of glamour and sexiness has shielded its brand from being successfully challenged.

Writing the last chapter of cocaine.

PURPOSE

What if Latin America was no longer defined by the commodity of cocaine, but instead, redefined by an economy based on creativity and innovation? This is not an anti-drug campaign. We are inspired by the success of efforts that have driven action around tobacco, plastics, drunk driving, ivory, and sugar. Each has been successful in moving consumers beyond a mindset of personal concern and consequence, toward a more inclusive, global and shared responsibility

Debrand Cocaine is designed to shift people’s perceptions and choices around cocaine, while simultaneously increasing regenerative economic activity that can surpass and replace cocaine as one of the Latin America’s biggest exports.
