A towering wave
The epic film, directed by Paul Geusebroek of HALAL, steers clear of climate conventions and 'conference jargon’, translating ‘Make Future’ into an iconic metaphor that brings together the power of nature and of people.
Drawing on the latest insights into effective system change, we have developed a campaign that calls for three acts: make friends, make trouble, make future. Because by working together, by breaking rules - what civil rights activist John Lewis calls 'good trouble' - and by speaking up we can change the future. From a creative perspective, too, we decided a new voice is needed for the climate movement. So, instead of using frightening images we used creativity to give resistance and climate activism a new tone and style.
Feel Good Trouble
In the design and identity developed by Dawn, ‘feel good trouble’ is a common thread. Combining bold typography with rainbow colouring reminiscent of Greenpeace's Rainbow Warrior it was important to develop a style that works in all channels. From a climate march protest to a heroic film, and from online actions to impactful outdoor, we set out to turn climate activism into a playful and optimistic affair.

In the run-up to the Dutch parliamentary elections in March, meters-high outdoor displays and a huge poster campaign will call people to take action and make politics green. On the action platform Make Future - developed together with Daylight 'feel good trouble' activations will be organized throughout the entire year.
