Describe the brief from the client
Our challenge was to generate awareness for donations for Ankerland e.V., a Hamburg-based aid foundation for deeply traumatised children, on a negligible budget.
Describe the challenges and key objectives
The aim of Ankerland is to raise awareness and inform, provide aid to victims and their families, and establish a new therapy center.
The target group consisted of a wide range of potential donors: passers-by in Hamburg, a nationwide Internet-savvy target group, social media users, TV viewers, and readers of the trade publication 'Fischer’s Archiv'.
Describe how you arrived at the final design
We exploited a current phenomenon with immense public impact: the Post-it War. A perfect medium to make us the talk of the town without PR expenditure. We recreated Michelangelo’s 'Creation of Adam' with a collage of 25,000 Post-its on the agency façade, and auctioned off the best parts of it on eBay to raise funds for Ankerland.
The Post-it fresco was created over 3 floors of the agency's building. It was about 15 meters (590 inches) long and about 12 meters (472 inches) high. Not only the biggest picture of the Hamburg Post-it War, but also Germany’s biggest charity billboard.
Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The promotion brought Ankerland a lot of buzz and publicity: comprehensive TV coverage, various articles in the press and on blogs, countless Facebook posts, and a most-liked feature on the official Post-it War fan page.
However, the most important aspect was the eBay auctions of the artwork brought in over €8,000 for a new therapy centre - the biggest single donation to Ankerland in 2011.
