Introducing Women Will: Empowering Women through Digital Skills and Community Building.
Women Will is a Grow with Google program supporting women’s potential through digital skills and community building. At the heart of the Women Will program lies a vision of empowering women, nurturing their potential, and fostering a strong sense of community.
As the Design Lead for the initiative, I had the privilege of shaping the visual identity and make it resonate with the spirit of empowerment and inclusivity.
My first task was to establish the brand of this new initiative born in Japan, as well as a solid playbook for further implementation.
Staying away from the stereotypical pink and blue model, we picked two clearly clashing colours, that could blend at times to form a third intermediary colour.
Subsequently, I curated a diverse collection of assets for specific community moments, (such as International Women's Day and WW Entrepreneurship Day), crafted a calendar raising awareness about the gender pay gap, designed a collection of gif stickers for everyone to use, collaborated with talented artists, and much more.
Additionally, I spearheaded long-term initiatives, including the creation of a brand-new website for online resources.
In a 2017 Google study about the gender in Asia Pacific, we uncovered data about the way we think we live, and how we actually do - at work and at home.
This tool allows you to explore the study, customize the statistics, and share the facts.
Our objective: tell stories and create experiences that exemplify Google's value and commitment by showing data-driven thought leadership.
The Divide by Women Will
After the #MeToo movement, Women Will debuted an Instagram channel to share its take on current events with content focused on inspiration, insights, and creating community.
As the program’s Art director, I oversaw the creation of hundreds of posts, reels, and beautiful collaborations for over two years, organically gathering a large community of 50k+ followers.
