Describe the challenges and key objectives
We created 'Kids Earth Hour'. On the same day and time as Earth Hour, we asked Kids/Mums to unplug electronics indoors and play physically outdoors. Our slogan: 'Save Energy Indoors, Use your Energy Indoors'. And we got the 'Earth Hour' organisation, WWF, to help us do it. The challenge was to design a visual ID for Kids Earth Hour that communicated the fun of playing outdoors, whilst communicating the reward of saving energy indoors to save the planet. This ID had to become something that could work throughout any medium.

Describe the brief from the client
‘Susta-Kid’ is a milk drink that builds strength and stamina in a child's body when combined with physical activity. Problem is, kids are doing less outdoor physical activities. Because they’re indoors glued to their TV’s, DVD’s, Video Games, And Internet. And Mums are letting it happen. So we realised that the objective of our promotional campaign had to be to increase the physical benefits of drinking Susta-Kid Milk, by increasing physical activity amongst kids.

Describe how you arrived at the final design

We took the image of an electrical plug, and turned it into a child. It became our logo and our character through every media channel. We approached the design by simplifying the core visual communication message: KIDS + UNPLUG + PLAY OUTDOORS. The Child-Plug design succeeded in communicating to kids on a fun, engaging, emotional level and Mums on a more literal, rational communication level. The design was so strong that we decided to make it the entire poster. So we die-cut the character and placed our message in simple type atop its chest. It became a very iconic, graphic icon, as opposed to a traditional poster.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The 'Child Plug' Posters we designed helped the Kids Earth Hour campaign achieve the results of: Over P15,000,000 in free publicity. Over 34,000 free page views online. And all from a budget of P2,000,000. Plus Kids Earth Hour contributed to a 40% increase in energy saved by Earth Hour in 2010. But the real value lies in what the campaign did for the Sustakid Milk brand. It positioned it as: - A builder of strength and stamina in your child’s body when combined with physical activity - A builder of a better planet.
