New Campaign ‘Sexxenger’ Highlights Online Danger For Kids

1

Innocence in Danger, the charity for the protection of children from abuse and violence, has launched a press and outdoor campaign highlighting the potential dangers that lurk within the internet.

The campaign, created by McCann London, features a seemingly innocent message from an online conversation.

The campaign shows how sexual predators use social networks and messaging to contact their unsuspecting young victims. Continue »

Unusual And Ironic Artworks By David Shrigley

David Shrigley is best known for his distinctive drawing style and works that make satirical comments on everyday situations and human interactions. His quick-witted drawings and hand-rendered texts are typically deadpan in their humour and reveal chance utterings like snippets of over-heard conversations.
