Fountain of Hygiene


In light of COVID-19, Bompas & Parr, together with the Design Museum, organised the competition Fountain of Hygiene to raise funds for the British Red Cross.

The competition invited creatives, designers and makers to explore the aesthetic, functional and social possibilities of enhanced hygiene this crisis have brought upon us.

When we were asked to partner with Bompas & Parr to help raise awareness of the Fountain of Hygiene competition, it was a given for us.

To maximise the number of competition entries, our strategy included using contextual targeting to run display banners on websites where we knew designers and creatives would spend their time, and in the end, our awareness campaign helped secure an impressive 182 entries.
