“It would be an understatement to say that I am proud of this prestigious and most important recognition for Jana, my whole team in Jamnica and Agrokor, and the Imago team, led by Damir Ciglar, who worked on the campaign Jana water with a message, edition Wing of Love, with the story of Malena and Klepetan. This award is also proof that love prevails, it’s a proof that the love moves the world, which was the main message of this Jana edition. I would especially like to thank Mr. Vokić who has spent more than 23 years taking care of the injured Malena, and whom Malena, as he says, has chosen to be her wing. Without his selfless love and permission to share it with everyone, this campaign, in which Mr. Vokić is also the best example of how love should be lived, wouldn’t be possible,” said Iva Balent.

CROATIAN DESIGNERS IN ACTION / EXHIBITION (29 JUNE – 5 JULY 2016)
On Wednesday, 29 June at 20:00 hrs. HDD Gallery in Zagreb will open the exhibition CROATIAN DESIGNERS IN ACTION. The exhibition marks the recent action in which an informal group of designers with their works gave support to the expert team for a comprehensive curricular reform, and the initiative CROATIA CAN DO BETTER, which with the same goal on 1 June this year organized a mass protest that was attended by over 40,000 people. Designed and implemented in a matter of days, the action was initiated by Tatjana Bartaković and Iva Babaja, and managed to gather a number of renowned Croatian designers as 30 of them responded to the invitation immediately, and many more joined during the action.
The posters that were created during the few days before the protest carried messages about the importance of education, as well as the dangers of ignorance, the resistance to political pressure on the profession in the key decisions for the future of society in which we live, but also about social responsibility and social mission of design as a profession. These posters carried the extremely successful campaign which was met with great public response, and ultimately they were translated into banners and became an integral part of the mass protest in Zagreb’s main square. From the very beginning, the action was formally endorsed by the Croatian Designers Society, as well as initiative Kulturnjaci 2016. Iva Babaja is a designer and former president of the International Council of Design (ico-D), while Tatjana Bartaković is a design manager.

BBDO HANDS BACK CANNES LION FOR ‘SCAMMY’ BAYER CAMPAIGN WHICH WAS SLAMMED ONLINE
BBDO has responded to the outcry over its Brazilian agency’s aspirin ads by handing back the Bronze Lion the campaign won at Cannes this week.
Not only was the tone of the work deemed offensive by many, but the ads contravened Cannes Lions rules after it emerged the agency itself, AlmapBBDO, paid for them to run, and not the client Bayer.
Speaking on stage at Cannes, BBDO chairman David Lubars said: “I learned last night that one of our very own agencies had a pretty scammy ad in the festival, and it won a Lion. I told them to return it. Because I don’t want that kind of Lion. BBDO doesn’t want that kind of Lion.”
The ads were exposed as scam work yesterday when Bayer distanced itself from the campaign and said it had been created specifically by the agency to be entered at Cannes Lions.
The campaign attracted widespread criticism on social media after prominent equality campaigner Cindy Gallop called out its creators and the outdoor jury who judged it worthy of an award.
