The Kick Ass Award

Posted by Marc van Gurp | 13-03-2012 21:03 | Category: Awards

Gala Societatii Civile - Când nu recunoşti binele, faci rău! - When you don't recognize the good, you do bad.

What I like most is campaigning with just one single image which tells the complete story.
That isn’t the most important design rule but the thing I prefer to see.

I guess you don’t understand any Romanian copy. Just like me.
“Când nu recunoşti binele, faci rău!”

What do you think this ad is about?

No it isn’t about violence on the streets. It isn’t a city cleaning campaign either.
The headline says: “When you don’t recognize the good, you do bad.”

It is from the Romanian Gala Societatii Civile. They promote the NGO sector in their country for ten years now.
The print ad is the promotion for their yearly festival. The best NGOs are awarded for their activities in the last year.

Part of the award is the Social Campaigns section. The submitted campaigns aren’t very exiting.
You can see them here.

I know there is a lot of good work made in Romania. See the list here at the bottom of this post.

Weird. My G-Translate says “When not recognize good, you bad!”
I asked Constantin, our friend from Love Issue. He’s from Romania.

So, I am Romanian, excuse the robots. „If you don’t recognize the good, you do evil”

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…
