Bloody hell! Thats a serious amount of sexual abuse though, is that right? one in five kids?

Thats a shame.

Nice visual though, this one is better than the previous one, looks really menacing because of the angle/perspective.

I like.

I really love this illustration, but indeed a logo that says Hansel und Gretel does noet make me feel serious about it

...and let the poets cry themselves to sleep. And all their tearfull words would turn back into steam

These are good ads. this one would be my favourite.

It's just a shame that we need an ad for this. The world isn't that great underneath the surface.


Doin' it for the points

This one is pretty nice, the other two are not so stunning. Nice art, but I wonder why there's such a long copy, but no Copywriter in the credits.

As far as I know the CD André Klein was the copy writer too.

No, I´m not André Klein, but I worked with him some years ago and the last time we met he was a copywriter, so I presume that he wrote the copy.

I might be asking a dumb question....but whats the diffrence between the person listed as the Illustrator and the Graphic. It seems to me that they only used an Illustrator. What is the graphic then?

That is a good question Minimum.

Coming from a graphic artist perspective I love the illustration, this one particularly the best out of the three.
as far as idea.. i thinks it might be weak, unless im not seeing something - if im not someone please enlighten me.

wow not sure if these numbers are right

from time to time you see some media coverage about that, but i never heard something like 20% of all children, i mean, these numbers are shocking by the way, if they are true

The impact derives from the information in itself, i think. Graphically it's beautifully orchestrated, but the "Monster House" feel is a bit too distraughting. Maybe it should be grimmer, cruder. The lettering is great but it too feels out of place. Yet again, tricky subject.
