Describe the brief from the client
To create an organ donation campaign with very few resources that appealed to our target, in a more interactive way.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
Increasing organ donation in Mexico is a big challenge. Less than 1% of the population are registered organ donors. Ignorance and indifference are our 2 main barriers.

The challenge then was 2-fold: Firstly, we had to turn the potentially bureaucratic act of becoming a donor (the signing of a form) into something more meaningful, inspiring and stimulating. Secondly, we needed to touch as many people as possible, and to do so constantly in order to widen our reach and be able to grow registered organ donors quickly. Afterall, there were more than 99% of them out there.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
Our t-shirts functioned as walking billboards that were also letters of invitation. They sought to celebrate the act of becoming a donor by highlighting the importance of organs, placing them at the centre of our communication. Through QR Codes printed on the tees, in a snapshot, people were able to see a video related to the corresponding photographed organ, which then lead to them having the registration form in the palms of their hands. After signing up, they could go get a t-shirt so the process started all over again.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
In the first week we gave out 60 t-shirts to 60 newly registered users. In the following 3 months, between September to December, another 150 people became registered donors. By the end of March, we had increased our donor base by 430 people, which translates into a growth of 35.8% in donors in only 6 months.
