BBH ECD Ari Weiss Talks UNICEF’s ‘Good Shirts’ in Latest ‘Behind the Cube’ Clip

ADC Behind The Cube: BBH’s Ari Weiss discusses “Good Shirts” from ADC Global Network on Vimeo.

Last week, we brought you news of ADC’s “Behind the Cube” video for Student Thesis Gold Cube winner Dani Wolf. This week, ADC has a new “Behind the Cube” installment, featuring BBH New York executive creative director Ari Weiss.

Weiss discusses UNICEF’s “Good Shirts” campaign — which sold t-shirts depicting an item of aid, priced at the amount it cost UNICEF to donate that item — and its unexpected success. As a driving force behind the campaign, Weiss believed “Good Shirts” would be the “conversation piece” of the campaign, building buzz and getting more people to donate. Instead, the idea really took off, and the t-shirts raised around half a million dollars — including the sale of a $300,000 shirt to an anonymous San Francisco buyer. It’s an interesting look at the process behind one of the more buzzworthy Gold Cube campaigns from last year, including a look at some of the excellent t-shirt designs, and an excellent reminder that sometimes even the creatives behind a campaign can be surprised by its results.

New ADC ‘Behind the Cube’ Video Features Student Thesis Gold Cube Winner Dani Wolf

The latest installment in the Art Directors Club “Behind the Cube” series features Dani Wolf, winner of the Student Thesis Gold Cube at the ADC 92nd Annual Awards last April for his final project at Bezalel Academy of Arts & Design in Jerusalem.

Wolf offers an intriguing look at the inspiration and process behind his Cube-winning “Disform 2012,” which, if you haven’t already seen it, is a really impressive series of signage-in-motion designed for a music festival. He explains how the inspiration for the project came from music and moving sculpture, and gives a small glimpse into his creative process. Looking back fondly on the experience, Wolk calls the process of spending three months on one thesis project “a one-time chance.” It’s a nice, brief (2:44) look at an impressive project from a young designer who should make waves in the future, but may never again have the opportunity to lavish all his attention on one pet project again. Wolf’s “Disform 2012″ project, and this “Behind the Cube” installment really speak for themselves, so please check out the video above. And feel free to chime in with your thoughts in the comments section.
