out for Powerlines
A series of video ads informing homeowners and construction workers of the dangers of overhead and downed powerlines.
Powerlines are a serious safety hazard for everybody, especially when using tools or vehicles that could come into contact with a powerline. Contrary to popular assumption, powerlines aren't insulated and contact with one - either directly or by touching something that can conduct electricity - is deadly.
The Electrical Safety Authority asked us to create a series of ads to inform people of the dangers of powerlines. Our concept was "distractions can be deadly" - we wanted to show how regular activities can lead to a quick death if people don't keep the proper distance from powerlines. Something extraordinary doesn't have to happen for a powerline to pose a threat.
We created four spots to address two audiences who are at risk of coming in contact with powerlines: construction workers and homeowners, and to address one scenario of downed powerlines.
I created this wordmark to go with the campaign.
