Inspiring forces for good
with the White Pencil D&AD Awards
Turning light into gravity. With no running costs, families can easily set up a GravityLight by filling a bag with stones or earth and attaching it to the device. Just three seconds of pull gives 30 minutes of light and means a child can study without any risks to their health.
GravityLight is a design worth talking about, and it has the potential to improve millions of lives. That’s why it scooped one of two of the coveted White Pencil Award for Design at this year’s prestigious D&AD Awards.
This year’s second White Pencil Award went to the phenomenal Sweetie campaign from child rights group Terre des Hommes. Sweetie is a computer-generated ten-year-old girl who’s helping tackle the problem of online child exploitation. Watch this film to find out more about the Sweetie campaign:
