2. Art Fund - Putting All Our Museums on a Pedestal.
Advertising Campaign & Public Installation
Although COVID-19 is on its way out, the public is naturally apprehensive to partake in the familiar act of visiting museums or galleries, businesses that are struggling immensely from the pandemic. To lighten this easing back to normality, the campaign gave each museum a platform to stand on, highlighting the unique aspects of each.
Henry Gadsdon / YCN 2021 Competition / 2021
A stunt-oriented advertising campaign for Art Fund, encouraging the UK population to make the most of their local museums that have been struggling as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
All that this leads to is this website, a local directory for the museums, so that visitors can find even the nichest museums or galleries closest to them. The pedestal acts as a constant in the navigation, with playful art direction also fitting the tone of voice of the campaign and Art Fund in general.
With the call-to-action being the website directory, a digital counterpart to the stunt campaign was crucial, using playful copy and motion graphics in Art Fund’s colours to equally intriuge viewers while retaining the message of ‘raising up’ the museums.
