MARCUS SMITH DIRECTS AND PHOTOGRAPHS HEALTHCARE.GOV "HERE FOR YOU" CAMPAIGN
Marcus helmed Healthcare.gov’s open enrollment campaign through Weber Shandwick, which features six real families in five different US cities. In a rebranding effort for the government health agency, Marcus was tasked with helping to get the word out that insurance can be affordable to the average person.
“It was nice to work with real people in their real homes and neighborhoods,” says Marcus. “It was a bit different than what I’m used to, but it felt good to create images that the talent would be proud of and to get their real stories out.”
