Last month I worked with Katherine Botes
at Saatchi & Saatchi
, Cape town and contibuted some hand lettering to their latest campaign for the Save Our Seas
foundation, a non profit organisation that works to preserve marine creatures and their environment.
Saatchi & Saatchi
have a long standing relationship with the foundation and this latest campaign, "The Ocean speaks out" took place over three days at Muizenberg beach, C.T.
The team collect a number of large shells which are then fitted with a mini speaker and are placed back on the beach early in the morning for people to find later in the day. On holding the shell to your ear, a plea for help from the sea is heard and listeners are directed to the SOS website.
Another early start for the team. On this day, beach goers discovered messages in weathered bottles that had appeared to have washed ashore. Inside the bottles were handwritten letters from different sea creatures asking for help.
