  • Oxfam Design for Change - Interview
    The true story behind the Brands - an Oxfam campaign. This was my contribution to solve the brief. An interview about the project is about to be featured. Behind the Brands aims for a future where everyone has enough to eat always. The campaign is a visual metaphor for the workers and farmers dealing with food every day, but can’t afford to buy food for their own families. The food is close, but yet so unreachable.View more of this work in my portfolio section.
