Glowing Glowing Gone

Glowing Glowing Gone is a campaign run by Adobe and Pantone in partnership with The Ocean Agency and UN Environment Programme, with the primary purpose of raising awareness of the condition of our coral reefs due to the rising ecological crisis.
For the first time in human history, we are on the verge of losing a major planetary ecosystem: coral reefs.

I wanted to bring attention to the lesser-known aspects of coral reefs, and shed light on their unbelievable qualities that give us reason to act now, before it’s too late.

If we lose the coral reef, we lose the medicine cabinet of the sea as creatures that live in the reef secrete fluids which re being used to treat diseases like Alzheimer’s, Heart disease and even some cancers.

If we lose the coral reef, we potentially put our own lives in danger as the reefs can act as natural barriers to hurricanes, typhoons and even tsunamis, preventing loss of life.

The purpose of this campaign is to act now, so please, share my illustration and the message of this ocean warning!

I created some iPhone wallpapers in the hopes of spreading this important ocean warning and shaping a conversation around change. You can download them via my instagram above.
