Fix the Mask
Company Goal: Spread awareness of what makes PPE effective (especially during COVID).
Clarity’s Challenge: Fix the narrative on mask filtration in the COVID conversation.
Founded in early 2020 in response to the acute global PPE shortage, Fix the Mask is an organization that offers designs for a brace to make surgical masks more effective as health care providers and frontline workers grapple with N95 mask shortages amid COVID-19. Fix the Mask had not done any press or external communications around its solution, and the company turned to Clarity to help launch the concept and raise awareness.
Clarity kicked off by working with the co-founders to develop Fix the Mask’s messaging and identifying key stakeholders to help inform media outreach. Since Fix the Mask began working with Clarity soon after launch, the firm was able to play an integral role in shaping its communications strategy from the ground up while ensuring that we secured stories to deliver maximum impact.
Following a deep dive messaging session, Clarity began full court press with a focus on tier one business publications. Fix the Mask’s goal was to get its solution into the hands of as many people as possible and, as such, upleveling visibility was key.
