Zulu Alpha Kilo Award for Advertising Design Winner: Samantha Tam

Winning Project: Can You Taste the Waste

By Samantha Tam, Vancouver Community College, Vancouver, BC


Award Sponsored by Zulu Alpha Kilo



Can You Taste The Waste

To educate the people of Metro Vancouver on the growing concerns regarding microplastics found in our food and water, a campaign featuring a series of posters was developed. The posters would be applied to TransLink’s advertising platforms, including bus stops and skytrain station panels in high traffic areas. To spark curiosity and create a sense of urgency, the campaign uses vibrant colours, strong typography and a catchy campaign name.
