The gift of life...

24 / 01 / 2012

For university I had to design three highly creative spectacular sized billboards that promote the Australian Organ Donor Register. I am not an organ donor myself, I never really liked the idea of someone cutting me up after I had passed away and letting parts of myself live on through other people. BUT, my views were drastically changed after doing this assignment. 

Did you know that....
- In January 2011 there were over 110,000 people waiting for an organ transplant ?
One organ and tissue donor can save the lives of up to ten people and significantly improve the lives of dozens more? 
- Around 1700 people are on Australian organ transplant waiting lists at any one time?

These statistics amazed me. I never knew that one person could save up to 10 people and improve the lives of dozens more. It's incredible the things we take for granted sometimes.

These are my 3 designs:

I went for a simple design that would have a high impact. The design shows someone that has passed away giving their organ to someone who needs it. 

Give someone the gift of life today!
