Sharkproject: Fin

"You have just finned a shark."

The Sharkproject is an initiative to raise awareness about the threat of shark extinction, centered on “finning” – a practice in which the shark is caught, their fins cut off and the rest of the animal thrown back to the sea. This mailing is printed on rough paper similar to a shark’s skin and tells the recipient where to cut the envelope open, revealing a bloody shark fin stump.

Organ Donation

Advertising Agency: Paim Comunicação, Porto Alegre, Brazil
Creative Director: Fabio Bernardi
Art Director: Fabio Piucco
Copywriter: Marcio Blank
Illustrator: Fescher Neoilustração

-From the comments-
According to the New York Organ Donor Network there are over ninety-six thousand men, women and children who are waiting for an organ for transplantation. These numbers are for just the United States and do not even begin to tell the global need for organs used in transplant surgery. These men, women and children wait every day to receive that phone call that says an organ has been located. Sadly, many do not live long enough to receive this call.
