Violence Marks Forever


UNICEF’s latest campaign features a pretty important man delivering an incredibly important message as UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador David Beckham calls for an end to violence against children.

It’s an important project for us too, as it was creatively conceived and executed by Absolute and our sister company BlindPig. We brought to life a number of animated scenes, depicted as tattoos on Beckham’s body, to highlight the shocking, yet all-too-common, forms of violence that youngsters face.

Beckham is the ideal canvas for allowing the powerful message to come to the forefront, and hopefully the film will help UNICEF in raising awareness to bring us one step closer to eradicating violence against children.
