I'd like to share a new, unique project that I just love.


Sand Sign, a project for artistic sand messaging, is launching a social initiative to set the official Record for Most Messages Written on A Beach. From February 12 till March 14, 2015, the Project will be collecting requests for sand messages from all around the world via a Kickstarter campaign.

After the submission period is over, a team of sand artists will skillfully draw all received messages on the stunning Sosua­ Cabarete beach of the Dominican Republic. Should the number of requests exceed one thousand, other locations will be added. The list includes, but is not limited to the Bali Island, the most romantic island of Thailand, Koh Samui, and exotic Costa Rica. The Record will also feature beaches near San Francisco.

All participants of the Record will receive pictures, videos, aerial videos shot with drones proving their participation, and personal musical greetings, which will be submitted for the official Record for Most Messages Written on A Beach.

The Global Record Campaign is also featuring works by Andres Amador, a sand artist of world recognition. Being the creator of the most stunning sand drawings on Earth, his works were marked by the leading media, such as Discovery, CNN, New York Times, BBC, and many others. A true landscape artist, he uses beach as a canvas, perfectly integrating his works into the surroundings.

With over 3 years of experience, over 13 countries and 3000 happy sand messages, Sand Sign is sharing global emotions. Sincere feelings will get officially recognized and carved into the history with the Global Record.

Call it a social flashmob, a public campaign, or love outbreak: Sand Sign is encouraging all to join, make a statement, go big and show the world that Your Emotions Are Awesome!
