When Nicolas from the USA did sent me an email with his project for 3D silicone wristbands I had to look twice at the drawings to be sure I understood well what he wanted me to make for him ! Silicone wristbands with a well identified pair of hanging balls !
From the mail I understood it wasn’t a joke at all, but an extremely serious project and subject. The message Nicolas wants to communicate with these wristbands is following :
It takes balls to fight cancer.
It’s an original way of fundrising for Cancer charity putting a highlight on testicular cancer. Indeed most campaigns about cancer in the USA and Europe focus on breast cancer with slogans like : .“Save the Ta Ta’s”…”Save the boob’s”.
I’m sure that the campaign will be succesfull as most probably TV and magazines will talk about it.
