Clear Start wanted to position themselves as the leaders in acne education for Gen Z, especially when it comes to popping pimples safely. The challenge was to communicate a lot of dense acne science into bitesize, easily-understood chunks suitable for a TikTok audience.
What I Did
I crafted a multi-channel content strategy and creative concept to live on TikTok and Clear Start's website. The concept starred @averagefashionblogger (Courtney Parchman) as a modern-day crazed Bill Nye who teaches about pimples and how to pop them properly. I served as creative director and content strategist, and wrote all campaign copy. for social, email, and ads.

"Pop it Properly" for Clear Start by Dermalogica
To build excitement and prime Courtney's audience for the skincare series, we had her post an organic-looking TikTok in her usual chaotic comedy style. It went live the day before the series launched, and also went viral.
Since the content was so science-dense, we went with a fully scripted 5-episode series. One episode released each day.
