Brief Explanation

In China millions parents of autistic children suffer in silence. Ignorance and 5000 years of superstition lead many people to believe that the parents of autistic children are being punished for past wrongs. Ostracized by their communities, and ignored by social services they often have no one to turn to for help. The Yang Ai Foundation set out to raise awareness for their plight.

Describe the brief from the client:

In China millions parents of autistic children suffer in silence. Ignorance and 5000 years of superstition lead many people to believe that the parents of autistic children are being punished for past wrongs. Ostracized by their communities, and ignored by social services they often have no one to turn to for help. The Yang Ai Foundation set out to raise awareness for their plight.

Description of how you arrived at the final design:

They did this by creating an exhibition of “Living Sculptures” on the streets of Shanghai. Dressed from head to toe in black, and bound by a sea of black ropes, the sculptures stood as a stark reminder of the heart wrenching loneliness and isolation felt by parents of autistic children.

Indication of how successful the outcome was in the market:

The event was reported on by more than 60 national and local media outlets reaching an estimated audience of more than 20,000,000 people.
