Electronic Giant Philips Do Charity with Marenthe.

Philips approached Marenthe to create some awareness raising posters and booklets for the United Children's project, Mama Siara. 
This commission was engaging, challenging and infinitely rewarding. Creating suitable designs that would speak to disadvantaged, often illiterate, African girls required Marenthe to think outside the box in terms of form and concept. 
Visual trends in Africa are completely different to Europe - vectorised images are far more popular there. This meant Marenthe had to exercise restraint! Solutions to problems or questions are not always about complicated concepts or beautiful images. Most important here was that the target audience understood the 'language'. Therefore strong, clear imagery and minimal text was used.
