ONE in FOUR Americans has been impacted by the opioid crisis. This important new project, directed by Tucker Walsh with an experience designed by Hyphen-Labs, is a collaboration with the National Safety Council and Energy BBDO.

“Stop Everyday Killers” is a public education campaign that debuted in Chicago with “Prescribed to Death,” an installation featuring thousands of pills carved with human faces. The pills represent the 22,000 people who died from opioid addiction last year, as well as the lives we continue to lose. Every 24 minutes, the memorial carves an additional pill, representing the frequency with which victims succumb to their addiction.
