Role: Concept, Copywriting, Lead Project Manager
Brazil has the world's highest rate of football-related deaths. Esporte Clube Bahia, one of the biggest football teams in Brazil, realized it was time to shine a spotlight on the problem of violence around the stadiums. That’s why we had the idea of turning an ordinary object into something extraordinary, to spread a meaningful and much-needed message. We used Camouflage jersey to raise awareness to the crisis and promote peace in Brazil.
The repercussion was immediate among National football players, fans, celebrities and influencers, who started supporting our campaign. Even the biggest team in Brazil, Corinthians, shared the idea on their social networks. The jersey itself became an icon for addressing this issue and is now part of an exhibition at Brazilian Football Museum.
