Centre for Mindfulness Studies
Breathe to Grow
While eager to fight climate change, teenagers often overlook their mental health. And just like the climate crisis, the mental health crisis is a severe issue the youth faces. To draw attention to the ‘environ-mental’ problem, meditation meets climate change.
The Centre for Mindfulness Studies is a beacon of hope when it comes to equipping young people with the tools they need to stay both healthy and happy. This Earth Day, they're taking their mission a step further by planting a tree for every minute a teenager meditates using their app.
This impressive initiative is a testament to the power of mindfulness and the Centre's unwavering commitment to making a meaningful impact on our planet. By combining science-backed techniques with environmental stewardship, the Centre is paving the way for a brighter, more mindful future.
Striking a balance between empowering teens to meditate without coming off as cringy, the campaign’s visual identity opts for a bright and inspiring colour scheme paired with an old-school serif typeface that suggests trustworthiness. To complete the look, hand-drawn, imperfect flat illustrations bring warmth and authenticity to the message.
