The 'Shaping Futures' campaign, which won the coveted Innovation award, was a successful launch for Janssen into the Australian market of Invega Sustenna, a drug developed for patients with schizophrenia to take control of their lives and shape their future. For the campaign, McCann Health built a plasticine world bringing to life the drug's ability to reshape lives.
