Sharpen your sluttee design skills

Posted by Tom Megginson | 20-09-2011 20:25 | Category: Women's Issues


Slutwalk Toronto, the group of women who started the worldwide phenomenon, did so with a number of great feminist slogans such as “this dress is not a yes” and “because we’ve had enough”. Now they’re asking the public to provide new messages and designs for their sluttee shirts (okay, I just made that one up but they can have it on the house!) as well as other not-for-profit marketing merchandise.

According to their blog:

“When SlutWalk Toronto began, we quickly assembled the design of our logo, poster designs and later merchandise to publicize our initiative and help cover the cost of organizing and running our main event. Since then, we have received a lot of positive feedback from Toronto, across Canada and elsewhere wanting to support SlutWalk with a button or shirt. We plan to keep going and work on educational projects along with another SlutWalk next year and we’d love to have designs from our Toronto community as a way to help raise funds. Beyond funds to help SWTO going, we will be donating extra money raised to various like-minded local organizations when possible. So we’re having a contest!

Anyone from any community can submit their designs. Based on a popularity vote from our supporters, we will choose the top nine designs {we will include the original SWTO design to make an even ten} and load them up to Skreened, our chosen shirt producer. Skreened’s products are ethically made and you can read more about their mandate here. We will then sell the shirts through our shop on the Skreened site.”

Contest closes this Friday. More info here.

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…

Can fundraising marketers recreate the #icebucketchallenge?

Yesterday, it finally happened. Somebody challenged me to the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS. If your internet connection has been broken all summer, it’s this year’s big meme. You can read about it here. To be honest, I felt that the movement had passed its high-water mark when I saw…
