Description

Print advertisement created by Ward 6, Australia for Wires, within the category: Public Interest, NGO.

Caption

The turkey was wild. And after four hours with his head stuck in the can, the bower bird was pretty livid too.
Spending a hot Saturday afternoon in a can of Bourbon and cola might be an appealing thought to many Australians, but for this underage drinker it nearly led to a sticky end. Every day, hundreds of our native animals are forced out of their natural habitats and into contact with humans. Thanks to a Wires volunteer, this one escaped with just a dry throat and a sore head, but many aren't so lucky. If you'd like to help, go to wires.org.au and find out how you can become a volunteer.

they aren't selling anything fool. As the copy says, they need volunteers to help rescue animals from situations like the one detailed above. Is english your 3rd language?

this is why you come back and look at what you wrote later, when you're sober. the client is a wildlife rescue organization. i had no idea what they were selling either until i pulled up the website. this is possibly beyond repair, meaning the idea is rotten. sorry, liquor or wildlife, let's pick one and stick with it.

This campaign isn't quick enough. The art direction is sweet, but the lines need to be quicker.

The whole campaign is a wash. The art is forced, and the colours are too bright and delicate for the seriousness of rhe message. Not to say that it should be despairing, relentless black, but a more serious tone would seem to be warranted.
