Brand Strategy

Quick Brief

Lysol is the brand to turn to for major crisis, but when it comes to the everyday messes—the ultimate ‘bacteria/germ’ that stretches into our everyday life—Lysol is practically an afterthought. To fight the ultimate ‘bacteria/germ’, we created Lysol DTC.


Lysol is often associated with sterile environments and used in critical situations. This perception is exemplified in the show "Ash vs Evil Dead," where a character literally uses Lysol wipes to eliminate a "dead smell" and bacteria from their body, illustrating how Lysol is synonymous with sterility and used in times of extreme need.

Everyday life is messy.

We see this human truth in everyday life both literally and figuratively. 

Handling feelings, tricky conversations, and unexpected challenges while trying to understand and get along with someone.

Literal Mess:

People are surrounded by messes, from spills and clutter at home or work to untidy personal appearances, making messiness a natural part of life.


Many groundbreaking inventions and artistic masterpieces have emerged from messy, experimental processes.
