Describe the brief from the client
No one has done more to create a world with more birthdays than the American Cancer Society. As a result, 11 million cancer survivors are celebrating birthdays this year. Our job was to tell the world about this important work.
Describe the challenges and key objectives
Rather than just tell people a laundry list of facts about the American Cancer Society, we wanted to offer people something that they would actually want... something with education already built in. So we asked artists around the world to create original artwork inspired by a Cancer Society breakthrough. The final designs could be purchased at morebirthdays.com as wrapping paper, a poster or limited edition print. All proceeds went towards helping ACS save lives and create even more birthdays.
Describe how you arrived at the final design
Illustrator Micah Lidberg was inspired by the American Cancer Society's Patient Navigator Program. This program helps guide cancer patients through their journey, giving support and guidance every step of the way.
Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
Over half a million people have visited the website to shop and learn, and the artwork has helped raise thousands of dollars for the fight against cancer. At the same time, brand awareness has increased and more people than ever before now associate ACS with helping creating more birthdays.
