One Minute Briefs: Campaign to Stop #TamponTax – Winner!

Bloody Disgrace Tampon Tax Bloody Disgrace Tampon Tax

One Minute Briefs teamed up with @bloodydisgrace and @fullsixlondon for this brief, to create a campaign to stop tampon tax:

WOMEN BLEED ONCE A MONTH. AND THEN PAY TAX ON IT.
There are 3.52 billion women in the world that will tell you, that menstrual hygiene products are essential to lead a functional, normal life.
However, several governments don’t think they are. They deem these items not essential, and tax them accordingly.

This is a #BloodyDisgrace.
We have created, and are launching a global campaign and petition, directed at the United Nations, to raise awareness of this unfair tax. We want every government to act together to declare that menstrual hygiene products are essential goods. This campaign has been created and supported by FullSIX London.
Above are my two entires and the first one became one of the winners. There was a phenomenal amount of entries for this particular brief, with many winners as well – which are all worth a look!
Last but not least, go ahead and sign the petition to put a stop to this bloody disgrace.

One Minute Brief: Advertise Tampons

One Minute Brief: Advertise Tampons

Yesterdays ‘One Minute Brief‘ was to advertise tampons, which yes at first I was pretty speechless about I have to say. It took me a little while to come up with an idea or two but as soon as I had, the creative juices soon started flowing – which is what I love about these One Minute Briefs. Here are the two entries I did. One being a very girly approach will the use of pink and a script font. But there is something quite disturbing about having a vector tampon floating on the design I have to say! The other approach was much more humorous and concentrated more on the affect ‘that time of the month’ has on men. On the whole really enjoyed this brief – even if it was very unexpected!
