Brand Identity / Brand Strategy / Print

Master of Disaster is a free classroom program designed to help young people learn about emergency preparedness. The program teaches youth in grades 4 to 8 about hazards in BC—like floods, wildfires, earthquakes and tsunamis—and shows them how to get prepared, both personally and at home.

 

 

Research

Through a combination of primary and secondary research, we quickly found that branding crisis provoked action which induced fear and discrimination. EmergencyBC took an inclusive approach through one year of stakeholder interviews with First Nations in British Columbia as well as in-depth interviews with teachers and parents.

We found that branding crisis using imagery brings previous experiences of trauma.
