Over 80% of New Zealanders living with depression, or anxiety, will have first experienced it in their teens.

The Lowdown has been helping teenagers struggling with depression for the past decade. But it was time to move on – teens are more aware of the issue now and just want to cut to the chase.

We created a design language that empathised with the way they felt, using warts-and-all photography and colour system. It also let us encourage them into action, with easy self-help tips that worked for our mobile-first audience. All capped off with a new logo that captured this new sense of ‘progress’. The result was a contemporary tool to help teams get through the shit times.
