Mental load is all about “managing” your household and your family at the same time: thinking, planning, organizing—and then implementing.
We created the Mental Load Award as the central element of the campaign. It can be awarded symbolically, as a sign of appreciation, to women who suffer from mental load. At the same time, the award is also a call to action to share the mental load equally. A prize that should become obsolete in the near future—thanks for nothing!
As a platform for education and event announcements, we designed and launched the account @mental.load.award on Instagram, which provides comprehensive information with a straightforward tone and contemporary design. In addition, we produced a short explainer video, which can both be shared online or used as a brief introduction to the topic at lectures and workshops.
We implemented individual campaign elements in collaboration with three artists from our creative network: Carl Auböck produced the physical award based on our design. We developed the visual language with photographer Martina Lajczak and organized photo shoots at the Volkstheater in Vienna. Together with Ari Ban, we found prototypical scenes, which he then illustrated.
