Depilex: Faces

Place your hand over this side of her face to see what hydrochloric acid can do.
Place your hand over this side of her face to see what hope can do.
Hundreds of Pakistani women are victims of acid attacks. Help us rebuild their faces, and their lives.

We wanted an ad to show that if you look beyond the scars of an acid victim, you will see hope in the faces of those that are attacked. An image that at first shocks the viewer, suddenly turns into an uplifting and inspiring message of hope.

How else would you get this message across? Shock value works, sometimes.
