Different shouldn't be scary

School: Miami Ad School


Nowadays anything that is remotely related to middle eastern countries looks scary. Even something apparently innocent and harmless like language could frighten us. We decided to push this thought forward and use the Arabic language in famous, big squares around the world to make a social experiment. We replace lines or logos, any written words of ads with Arabic. Our message is clear: we want people to stop classifying everyone in the same category. Just because we're different, for languages and cultures, it doesn't mean we should make this a significant reason to divide us. On the contrary, our differences should be our strength point.

This student campaign titled 'Different shouldn't be scary' was published in Germany in September, 2016. It was created for the brand: Amnesty International, by ad school: Miami Ad School. This Outdoor medium campaign is related to the Public Interest, NGO industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted about 6 years ago.
