A global campaign helping the IUCN Red List survive

The IUCN Red List is the world’s most comprehensive information source on the global conservation status of animal, fungi and plant species. But it is under threat. Since the Credit Crisis, funding for conservation has decreased by 85 percent and our Red List of Threatened Species™ has grown by 34 per cent. Time to take action. This multi-media campaign is geared towards a range of target groups, from ordinary people to governmental stakeholders across the planet. All initiatives are sponsored by various donors of which the European Commission, the United Nations Environmental Programme, the McArthur / Rufford Foundation, and the French Ministry for Foreign Affairs are the biggest contributors.

The School of Architecture and Planning

For over 80 years now, the University of the Witwatersrand School of Architecture & Planning has a reputation for grooming architects and planners to the point where they can successfully start pursuing their careers – and follow in the footsteps of some of the world’s finest the school has produced over time. Every year, the Johannesburg-based School tries to attract the most imaginative student candidates – the ones who dare to think different – although they still have lots to learn. These talented students have various options to where they like to pursue their studies; universities in Cape Town and Stellenbosch also have reputational architecture faculties, but for Wits University, the quest for talent has become an annual obsession. This year we developed an intriguing ‘call for entries’ campaign of internal posters, flyers, advertising, social media, and we revisited the School of Architecture & Planning micro-site too. 3D photo retouching by Victor Enrich. Copy by Mark Varder.

Slavery is alive and kicking

These young wild monkeys are illegally captured, forced to behave against their instinct, and dressed up as clowns. This sadistic practice is happening all over Pakistan. The purpose? Begging. To make a quick buck on the side of the road.

The WSPA fights this kind of animal cruelty. The WSPA is a global organisation that protects and returns abused animals to the wild. ‘At the WSPA, we are working hard towards a world where animal welfare matters and animal cruelty ends. Being the world’s leading international alliance of animal welfare organisations, helps in addressing these kind of issues… with mainly positive results. We can continue our work as long as people keep donating…’ – Kai Akram, Head of WSPA

To rehabilitate monkeys to their own habitat obviously takes time because these animals are so traumatised that they need a slow and careful approach to learn to look after themselves again, to be socially accepted into a new monkey family pack. And sometimes (especially when monkeys grow older) rehabilitation doesn’t work out altogether and they have to be euthanised. Photography by Muhammed Muheisen.

Globe Telecom

Globe Telecommunication Corporation is the largest mobile telecom provider in the Philippines. It believes its 4G network promises not just a faster service for its customers but ‘a hypnotising and fascinating interaction with an ever-changing and evolving digital world’ that includes apps and services, mobile TV, gaming, 3D television and cloud computing. We like to think this logo design proposal is the first experience of that fascination for Globe™ customers. And talking about fascination, isn’t time all logos had movement?
