News Media: International Womens’ Day

These illustrations were rush-jobs commissioned by The Ferret to accompany an article detailing the successes and failures of various gender equality measures, published on International Womens’ Day 2018.

The brief required the portrayal of particularly abstract concepts, specifically the Pay Gap and Corporate Board Balance. As with previous work with The Ferret, I opted to inject a human element by using relatable characters who could express emotion and convey the article’s messages wordlessly. I was also able to use the official Womens’ Day colour palette, to ensure that the images were recognisably on-brand for this particular event.
