  • Disembodied private parts preach consent

    By on 4 March 2016

    In a campaign that reminds me of Sweden’s singing genitals for kids, the North America’s Project Consent uses cute animations of body parts to deliver an important social message. In this case, however, the target audience is older. And...

    If your partner turns out to be Joseph Stalin

    By on 28 December 2015

    We have lots of dictators in our archive and this new campaign from the Swiss Frauenzentrale is no exception in terms of visual language. It is about the two different sides, friendly and violent. The Swiss organization plays it safe by choosing already dead...

    #ItsNeverOkay makes harassment brutally frank

    By on 26 November 2015

    **Trigger Warning: Sexual Harassment, Bullying, Implied Rape** In March, I wrote about the Government of Ontario’s great new anti-sexual-assault campaign, #WhoWillYouHelp. Now, they’re addressing some more subtle forms of harassment, both sexual and bullying, by having the offenders speak plainly...

  • Awful shock ads depict children as sex dolls

    By on 23 November 2015

    Disgust. That’s the first and only reaction I have to this campaign. Glow, Berlin, clearly had that visceral reaction in mind when they designed it. That’s what they do for Innocence in Danger. One campaign tried to lure casual...

    The best anti-bullying film this year is made by students

    By on 18 November 2015

    Everything is right is this anti- bullying short film from England. The acting, editing, music, rhythm and the story. Surprisingly, this short film has an unusual length of more than three minutes. And it is made by students from the 7 and 8 year...

  • Childrens Society Sexual abuse should not be a normal part of growing up

    Sexual abuse should not be a normal part of growing up

    By on 17 November 2015

    I’m of two minds about this new campaign for The Children’s Society (UK) by VCCPme: The storyline is chilling, and deeply affecting. Especially when we see the family’s ignorance of what the young woman is going through. At the same time,...

    A big hurray for this campaign from the Canadian Avalon Sexual Assault Centre. They proof that not only communication professionals know the rules of appealing communication, the fact that we often seek. Also applause for an organization that wasn’t blinded by...

  • The erasure of LGBT youth

    By on 25 August 2015

    Well, “LG” anyway: These posters, for Czech LGBT support organization Sbarvouven, give a visual expression of how “in the closet” lesbian and gay youth feel themselves erased by having to pretend to be someone they’re not. Simple, but devastating. Agency: Oh,...

  • These revenge porn ads seem a little too sexy

    By on 14 August 2015

    I use my iPhone to text daily, but it took me a minute to figure out that these women were split up by the familiar “talk bubbles.” Then I had to admit to myself that I was instinctively distracted...

  • Center for Child Protection: How To Spot The Signs Of Abuse

    Duh, Kids Don’t Talk Like This

    By on 5 June 2015

    Recognize the signs of abuse is difficult but can be learned. That is the main idea behind this new campaign from the Center for Child Protection. Kids don’t talk shockingly straightforward language like in this campaign. It’s the ‘duh’ factor, an eye...
