The challenge was that people love sticking chewing gum. So why not give them a better place to stick it.
Describe the brief from the client
People were defacing the beautiful D’Monte Park in Mumbai by sticking chewing gum everywhere. Haiyya, a non-profit organisation, wanted to make a difference and clean up the park. A solution was needed to fix this issue.
If people love sticking gum, why not give them a better place to stick it – on the ticket!
So we created “Stick-It Art”
We got artists in Mumbai to create interesting illustrations on the back of the entry ticket, leaving a spot for the chewing gum. The gum completed the illustrated story.
Visitors at The D’Monte Park were amused. They interacted and engaged with the idea and got the point about not sticking gum anywhere or everywhere. They were instant converts.
The activity at the D’Monte Park is only a beginning. Seeing the successful reaction to the idea by the public, Haiyya is in conversation with the Bombay Municipal Corporation to take the stick-it art idea to other parks in Mumbai.
