Catalyst is a non-profit organization who work with major brands and CEOs to build workplaces that work for women. For International Women’s Day, they wanted to put a spotlight on their cause by lighting up office blocks with the venus symbol. Our challenge was to create maximum impact within the constraints of a charity budget.
We made use of the best resource available to charities - the goodwill of volunteers - and apply our own production expertise to the problem at hand. Instead of an expensive projection-mapping exercise, we used lighting gel on the windows of the buildings to turn the interior lights red.
We laid out the instructions for creating the effect into a toolkit, designed merchandise to help recruit the volunteers and helped order all of the necessary materials. The spectacular results were visible in New York, Toronto, Lima and London met the client’s ambition, at a fraction of the original price.
