Describe the challenges and key objectives

The brand identity needed to appeal to young Moms, so the look needed to be feminine yet strong, and fashionable. The brand needed to feel at home on a picket sign as well as on the side of a push chair.

Describe the brief from the client
Design a logo, graphic standards manual, postcards, and a website for Moms Against Climate Change (MACC). MACC is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to increasing climate change awareness. MACC educates Canadians and lobbies Canadian politicians to take action.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
To get Moms concerned and involved, we used a baby silhouette to let Moms know exactly who MACC is building a cleaner future for. Big, bold, capitalised typography communicates urgency, strength, and authority, while the fluffy cloud communicates hope and illustrates MACC’s end goal. Baby blue and green are naturally occurring colours, both with environmental cues.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
MACC’s first campaign, lobbying Canada’s Prime Minister to attend the Climate Change Summit in Copenhagen, launched with instant success. A viral video drove people to the website, where thousands of parents submitted photos of their children to be part of an outdoor projection petition. The Hufflington Post called the campaign “mind blowing”. Canada’s Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, bowed to public pressure and attended the Summit.
