  • #SexFactsOmaha fights teen sex myths

    By on 26 January 2016

    This campaign, by all-volunteer agency Serve Marketing for Women’s Fund of Omaha, is pretty good in terms of production. But do teens really believe any of these things? This gives me serious doubts about sex education in Omaha. The campaign includes TV spots,...

    By on 18 December 2015

    All the hype around Star Wars: The Force Awakens is taking me back to 1977, when I was seven years old and the original film was just about the biggest thing in the world. In the years following, kids couldn’t...

    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...

    By on 18 November 2015

  • 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 lot of terrible things can happen in the world of a child. And UNICEF shows how close to these things can be. They did it in this video showing a family trip to the park which was totally normal. Until their...
