This year’s women’s day was all about empowering women, and more companies than ever have come together to celebrate this day.
Creative Equals, an organization aiming to support talented women and promote diversity in creative industries, has decided to replace iconic brand logos with female figures in order to highlight the issues of unbalanced branding in the media.
Their logos include companies like Pringles, Monopoly, DreamWorks, Schwarzkopf, and Bic. Creative Equals hope that this will bring out the issues of gender inequality because according to the organization’s founder and CEO Ali Hanan, 89.5 percent of design directors are male and it can affect a brand’s identity.
In an interview with Dezeen, Ali Hanan stated that they are not attacking any of these brands personally, but they wanted to show a variety of examples to get people celebrating International Women’s Day and thinking about the need for more women.
This is not the only creative idea for International Women’s Day this year, we were already surprised by Barbie’s collection of 17 new dolls that portray inspiring women from all around the world.
