Helping New York go on the go

Toilet paper is a commoditized category. Everybody needs it, but almost nobody thinks about what brand they’re buying. Charmin wanted buyers to think more about their brand, so they came to Jack Morton Chicago and Genuine to build a physical and digital experience that would make their toilet paper people’s favorite.

We live in an on-demand world where we can get anything anywhere we go. Except . . . a clean, comfortable place to go.

The Solution

Let people “enjoy the go” wherever they are, by offering not just a superior bathroom product, but a superior bathroom experience. On-demand.
