The Babylution (#jmbg protests) started on June 5, 2013 with a Facebook post from a distraught mother in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

I've shared this idea over social networks and for only one night it has become a national symbol of Bosnian "Baby revolution" resistance. With this practical example I want to show how important it is for designers and creatives to respond with their ideas in real time, without the influence of perfectionism.
