David Carson Design
Partnership for Drug Free America – TV spot
David Carson , Director
ADDY Awards :
I didn’t realize that this was David Carson’s work when we watched it the first time. The typography wasn’t the thing that caused me to enjoy it. It was just a novel way to do a very “tired” subject. It caused me to think about things in a different way and that’s what made it good. Very clever solution.
This spot had it all…killer art direction, amazing broadcast design, and most importantly, a powerful concept. It did what all those “Parents…the anti-drug” spots are trying to do, but failing miserably: Tell you exactly what you as a parent can do to help your child. And as it turns out, it’s a pretty simple thing to do. Moving, compelling, and persuasive.
