Make them Obay you

Here’s the latest from Smith Roberts, Toronto for Ontario Colleges. The “from the makers of WhyBecauseISaidSo” at the bottom is the perfect cherry on top of this great campaign. If you want more Smith Roberts, check out their work for the United Church. Yep, great creative for a church. Full credits for Obay are here.
