Oil & Water Do Not Mix

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Typography / Typography for Design / 2011

After the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, creatives from ad agency Happiness Brussels went to the region and collected oil from the polluted beaches. The oil was used to print a limited edition of 200 posters that sold out in less than 48 hours. All profits went towards the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana, to fund its clean-up campaign on the Louisiana beaches.
