In the past couple of years we have wondered whether or not it would be possible to reinvent the way that we define making donations. One of the reasons we have wondered is the fact that it seems like the way that people donate has not changed for the last decade – not remarkably anyway.

Recently Greenpeace launched a website to engage people in the creation of the new Rainbow Warrior – their flagship, so to speak… Their way of generating funds for the creation of the ship is a step in the right direction – but it can be taken even further to ensure loyal and engaged contributors.

Great work on the concept and design by DDB – France, Les 84 and Greenpeace

One year ago a group of people gathered around Stengade in Copenhagen to celebrate the birthday of now famous bus-driver, Mukhtar. So on this day, his birthday, we can congratulate him again and celebrate the fact that the youtube-film is about to reach the 3.000.000-click mark. Tomorrow it will also be decided whether the movie will go from Creative Circle-shortlisted to Creative Circle-winner.

Fingers crossed and Happy Birthday Mukhtar!

In this past fall Kadaver found itself in a fortunate role of being assigned to a task for the Danish Ministry of Food. Kadaver was chosen along side to other companies and in-house friends, bybird and Haus CPH. This constellation of three companies designed and shaped a campaign that was to address what the Danes wanted in terms of healthier, better and more appealing fast food and convenience products. Through recent years the usage of unhealthy fast food and convenience products has increased rapidly and the campaign was launched to find out whether or not there could be found alternative or new solutions that would make the healthier choice easier for the Danes to make.

The design of the campaign was created around well-known elements that would both created a sense of security to the target group, but it would also have a clear reference to the elements from the world of fast food and convenience products. This was done to secure that the focus of the campaign was in center and the target group would be willing to engage in dialogue around the campaign focus.

The result was a name “Mums – Hvad skulle det være?” (direct translation; Jummy – What will it be?) referring to two well-known terms within the Danish food universe.

The graphic design was inspired by both the environment around the american dinners and the Danish countryside homes.

The campaign that ran in a four week period contained viral elements such as a homepage (hurtigmums.dk), twitter-account, youtube-account and a facebookpage. Alongside these elements the campaign could be found on street-level via a national voxpop carried out by the campaign character Agent Mums, Go-Cards in cafés, headrestsleeves in the busses of Copenhagen and finally during a two week period in “The People’s Kitchen”, where the Danish consumers could taste and give feedback to different producers of Fast Food and Convenience products.

The conclusion of the campaign has been loads of feedback given by the target group, which will help form what future initiatives needs to be made in the future regarding fast food and convenience products.

I just stumbled upon a great example of what you can achieve if you decide to involve our target group. In general this concept is seen a lot in the business world, but this example is from the music world. This might even be what will help the music industry through it’s crisis – just a thought… Anyway Danish band Kashmir decided to involve their fans in the creation of their new music video by encouraging them shot a video containing their logo – they should then send the file to Kashmir who would then in turn pick the best contributions for their new video. Smart… It turned out that more than 200 videos was received. Thus creating a music video for the fans by the fans. That is one hell of a way of nursing fans and cutting costs in production.

I have attached a link to an interview posted on Politiken (it’s in danish): Press the image below to access the interview

I think the result speaks for itself. And I can only imagine the feeling of actually contributing to music video of ones favorite band. Enjoy it:

In general it seems that Kashmir are focusing on making their website a gathering point for all fans and interested people. Check it out – I think they might be on to something. kashmir.nu
