GoodHousekeepingProof Created by Dallas-based advertising agency Launch, the ad was recognized as one of the top ten in capturing the highest level of recall and readership.  ”Imagine,” one in a campaign of three print ads, utilized the sharp contrast of pink on black and direct eye contact to capture the attention of the reader. It ran in Newsweek beginning 4Q 2008.
