But I'm not the only one (Advertising) continued


But I'm not the only one (Advertising)

This is a series to create awareness for a social issues. The advertisements are all directed to the (fake website), which is a site that would in theory connect people who want to support a good cause with other people as well as the charities.

The idea is based on that it is acceptable to support a cause such as Global Warming and not come off looking like a tree hugger or support Charities that help third world countries without being seen as a "Miss World candidate" if others are seen wearing the t shirts making videos with signs or what ever they use.

Then comes the action part, where you volunteer to help or donate to the cause.

The "but I'm not the only one" quote is taken from John Lennon's song 'Imagine'. The idea being someone would say "I want to slow down global warming....Some people say I'm just dreaming (Something along the lines of "Some say I'm a Dreamer") and the But I'm not the only one sign or t shirt would be there voice.

Here is a teaser ad

What is a logo


When looking at doing a logo for CPIT School of Art and Design, I wanted something that would represent creativity yet still remain a strong logo mark and fit into the usual logo requirements. Something that would be adaptable and could change.

Inspired by this trend of Block types work by Andrei Robu, Michael Bierut (MAD), Angus Hyland (Brand Spanking). I started to design a logo. Development here and earlier development (blog here) and the specific posts this one, this one and this one. Above is the logo in it's standard application.

these images are what the logo can become.
