Apple's iPhone has long dominated the smartphone landscape, but Google Pixel was gaining ground rapidly thanks to a suite of cutting edge photo tools available exclusively on Pixel phones— from the magic eraser, to Real Tone, to the Unblur feature. The ask was to promote the unblur feature in a way that would resonate on a human level. It's technically amazing that Google can restore detail to images that wasn't there, but we knew the audience would care about "how" we did it. They needed to understand "why" we did it.
