This campaign uses engaging and empowering faces of individuals to address abuse within the household. Ohana Pili means “close family” in Hawaiian and focuses on the relationship between a possible victim and abuser. The individuals use their appearance to engage the viewer and the close-up shots emphasize a sense of intimacy and tension. This campaign asks viewers to be reflective about their actions and feel safe in reaching out for help.
SOME SCARS LAST A LIFETIME uses a hand print of paint to imply abuse in a graphic, yet approachable way. The handprint motif is also thematically flexible, applicable to a child to illustrate child abuse rather than intimate partner abuse.
