A lot of pens in this new Your Signature Is More Powerful Than You Think from Amnesty International

‘Your Signature Is More Powerful Than You Think’ is the well-known theme of Amnesty International. And is often used in campaign videos. This is the latest.
Amnesty is celebrating again the association’s process of mobilisation and its backbone in contributions: the signatures of supporters.

The film follows the ominous course of a persecuted protestor: arrest, detention, physical cruelty but mainly focusing on the release once thousands of pens petition to release the man from his incarceration.

The soundtrack, performed by Paolo Nutini (Iron sky), features a short excerpt from Charlie Chaplin’s speech from The Dictator providing a singular depth and meaning to the film.

The atmosphere in this latest version is a little too industrial, artificial is maybe the right word. Luckily the agency used music with a human touch.

Branding a time-bound campaign, Forest & Bird did it.

It’s not new but it is not often used: branding for a time-bound campaign. The kind of branding used for temporary purpose. Forest & Bird did it recently for their Love Nature: Vote 2014 campaign. New Zealand’s largest independent conservation organisation wanted nature back on the political agenda. The future…
