Durbin gets the KISS of light!

Durbin’s solar-powered light technology in operation

Durbin, one of the world’s leading specialist medical suppliers and distributors of pharmaceuticals, has appointed Cambridge-based KISS to act as its integrated communications agency.

KISS will be working with Durbin to promote Luci, an inflatable, solar-powered light, to the NGO and charity market. The activity will cover advertising, branding, digital, experiential and PR.

Luci is a safe and sustainable successor to kerosene lamps, which each produce the equivalent toxic fumes to smoking 40 cigarettes a day.

Durbin claims that a Luci light requires only eight hours to charge and provides up to 12 hours of light. By providing those living in energy poverty with light, Luci is able to improve safety at night, increase work productivity and allow students to study for longer into the night, as well as reducing the risk of burns and pollution from kerosene lamps.

Durbin is one of the world’s leading specialist distributors of pharmaceuticals, medical and relief supplies. A global company, Durbin has  operations in both the UK and US and distributes to over 180 countries.

The first stage of the Luci campaign was the launch of a microsite, as Anthea Hughes, account director at KISS Communications explained.

“The Luci website is a fully responsive, mobile first microsite, which acts as a tailored online resource for the NGO and charity sectors. The website is the focal point of the campaign and stands out in this sector, providing evidence-based information on the emotional and functional benefits of the product.

“As an agency we were thrilled to be appointed to work with Durbin on the Luci lights campaign. Working to promote Luci lights gives us the opportunity to make a real difference on an international scale.

“This is a great example of a campaign utilising all of the marketing touch points and the team is very excited to work on this project, which has such a simple, but innovative product at its heart.”
