A cleaning tag

A cleaning tag

A new campaign by the French government has made its mark on some of Paris’ walls. Called the ‘clean tag concept’, social messages are stencilled on walls by cleaning  the surfaces rather than painting them. It promotes messages about social issues (helping the homeless), cultural issues(restoring historic monuments) and environmental issues(making the city cleaner).

Why it matters

By using tags in a “clean” perspective, the French state has taken into account the need for the communication format to match the message conveyed. When it comes to social causes, is making the most of urban culture the key to bringing further awareness to a younger audience?
