Corporate social involvement is increasingly important in a globalised and networked world. B.H. Mayer’s IdentitySign is aware of its social responsibility and for this reason supports selected projects which provide assistance to improve the lives of people through its charity pin badges and lapel pins.
Charity Pin Badges by Liam Gillick
The Charity Pin Badges Project started in 2012 with British artist, Liam Gillick – who designed the German Pavilion at the 53rd Venice Biennale in 2009 – in support of the children’s charity, UNICEF. With Gillick on board, B.H. Mayer's had gained a major figure representing »socially engaged artistic practice«, a genre that does not forsake its social responsibility. With his wide spectrum of artistic activity, ranging from brightly coloured minimalist sculptures and expansive installations through to music, publications and plays, this artist picks up on a key impetus for the modern spirit: the interaction of the aesthetic with the social.
The piece of jewellery is kindly marketed for us by renowned art and audio book publisher »Brigade Commerz«. The net proceeds from sales go to the children’s charity, UNICEF.
Limited edition of 50 pieces.
Pin Badges for the »Menschen in Not« Fundraising Campaign
B.H. Mayer’s IdentitySign also supports the »Menschen in Not« campaign run by the local press. »The aim of the charity is to provide material and non-material support to people in need or to charitable associations and organisations as well as providing financial support to charitable projects run by local communities or community associations.« During the annual Sunday Opening event in Pforzheim called the »Pforzheimer Wirtschaftswunder« [Pforzheim Economic Miracle], a Wirtschaftswunder pin badge by B.H. Mayer’s is sold, decorated with motifs of historic cars. The money raised by the sale of these badges is donated by B.H. Mayer’s IdentitySign to the Menschen in Not campaign.
