Why 'Sorry is a start'?

Child Focus: The Missing Stamp

 PRINT   BELGIUM    November 27, 2018 23:06 Focus, the Belgian Center for Missing Children, celebrates its 20th birthday. In honor of this we got the chance to design a national stamp. The stamp had to embody all missing children, without losing the emotional side of these stories. So we started off from the central excruciating emotion that all families of missing children have to endure: loss. We wanted to show the void in the life of these families in its most pure form. We did this by doing the opposite of what people expect on a stamp: we didn’t show a portrait.
Instead we used its absence as the central design element. Effectively saying everything by showing nothing. Agency: Wunderman Antwerp.

OVK/PEVR - Parents of Road Victims: Almost Home

 INTERACTIVE   BELGIUM    October 03, 2018 21:47 miss a lot when you text behind the wheel. But how much exactly? Well, now you can just see for yourself: turns Google maps into a text editor and allows you to type on any road. A specially designed font connects with speed limitations of the road you are typing on and stretches to the exact amount of meters you are driving blind. The results are eye opening: One character at 90km/h makes you miss 19,75 meters. That makes 26,33 meters at 120km/h. Needless to say, your text messages are longer than you think: ‘Almost home’ is 10 characters, but 289 meters as well. ‘On my way’, 7 characters, but 236 meters. And these are just the shorter kind of messages people keep texting behind the wheel. Longer messages are quickly reaching 1 kilometre. Stunning, keeping in mind that 1 fraction of a second of inattentiveness can have serious consequences.

 WEB FILM   BELGIUM    April 26, 2018 20:07 Japanese restaurant in Antwerp offers people free tattoos. And they are actually tasteful. At first sight the tattoos look like any other Japanese tattoo but there is one big difference. The tattoos don't translate as 'hope', 'courage' or 'love'. Instead they have a meaning that is really worth something such as Crispy Duck Salad, Sashimi of Sea Bass or another dish of the menu. Because apart from the ink, those who have the name of a dish immortalized on their skin also get their meal for free at Dim Dining. Wunderman, Antwerp, turned 19 dishes, including starters, main courses and desserts, into Japanese tattoos. People who want a tattoo can register on the website of Dim Dining. Dimitri will then select the winners who will get inked at Glorybound, a renowned tattoo shop in Antwerp. Afterwards, they are welcome at Dim Dining to enjoy the meaning of their tattoo.
