Describe the brief from the client
To recruit new supporters for Greenpeace Switzerland.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
The challenge was to find a campaign mechanism that really motivates and gets people to join Greenpeace. The campaign’s motto is a metaphor that lies at the core of Greenpeace: David vs Goliath. This metaphor was transformed into our campaign. The goal was to find more ‘Davids’ to join Greenpeace in the battle against polluters. The motto suggests itself: ‘Become David now’.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
The illustration campaign brought Goliath to life, showing horrible monsters as a metaphor for the polluting companies. The only one who is able to stop them is brave David with his slingshot.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
Switzerland became David. Just 4 months after the campaign launched, over 7,600 new Davids joined Greenpeace Switzerland. That’s a 26% increase in members.
