Identity & Gender

View this brief on PDF

Adobe Artist: Karen Santos

The concept of the gender binary is being increasingly questioned and scrutinized — and rightly so.

In recent years, people have only become more vocal about our need to reassess how we think about gender, and brands have begun to place a high priority on truly inclusive visuals.
We need authentic, empowering, everyday narratives that represent people across the gender spectrum. With this topic, we explore the true lived experiences of individuals and communities through the lens of gender, and we celebrate the LGBTQ+ community. Together, we can use the power of inclusivity to highlight stories about living life on your own terms.
