Clearco (previously ClearBanc) is the largest ecommerce investor in the world. The creative direction pays homage to ClearBanc’s original branding that eluded to perforation, transparency, clartity, and builds onto this brand equity by flipping the switch, placing founders on the stage, shining the brightest lights onto them.

This meticulous approach extended to packaging and marketing materials, reflecting the clinic's commitment to professionalism and excellence.
