Nelson Cabral’s concept for anti-tanning campaign gets national exposure


news44CABRAL was engaged to develop an advertising campaign to discourage, and potentially eliminate, the use of tanning beds prior to prom. The goal? Shock females, aged 16-24, about the risks of using a Tanning Bed for prom.


CABRAL created an edgy and shocking ad campaign that likens tanning beds to coffins – and an unforgettable visual gets the point across that “tanning beds are not worth dying for.” The concept educates about the negative impacts of using tanning beds for prom: tanning just once a month increases the risk of melanoma by 75%. The campaign has surely given young women a damn good reason to change their tanning behaviour.
