USAID is a government tool responsible to enhance the life quality in developing countries.
Agency: FCB Mayo
My Role: UX Designer
After extensive research in Peru, USAID noticed that there are a lot of illegal dumping areas causing a massive increase in infectious diseases in the country.
We knew that more than fight to increase government investments to clean those areas, we need to educate people about the problem in order to try to change the behavior that was causing the problem. And this was our brief.
Vultures are the guardians of nature, they eat organic garbage every day, cleaning the environment with their own stomach. Their flights report dirty areas, no one could be better than them to teach human how to respect the environment. The storytelling for our campaign was flying every day in Lima´s sky.
We developed a digital platform with google maps and GPS technology connected to 10 vultures flying through different neighborhoods of Lima. Those vultures were captains of the city that invited Peruvians to report illegal trash areas in the city through our website.
To create this platform we mixed different digital tools in order to track the vultures and show the data on the website.
Each vulture became a digital character that was illustrated by Pietro Soldi. With their avatars, they communicate with users through the social media channel awarning about the trash and how to recycle.
