Repeat after me: ‘Beauty comes in every colour, size, shape and glo up. I am beautiful!’

Diversity competition #HumanAfterAll is coming to an end in less than a week! However, we will continue our mission of rethinking the advertising through images.

We need to see more photos that show how many shades we come in: from the darkest brown to the lightest hue, from the vitiligo patterned to freckled and the birth-marked skin, from bodies covered with scars or tattoos etched like artwork to dyspigmentation all over.

13827251_1284328818246434_1952483801_nHelp us reshape the image that advertising perpetuates and we will soon see more real people and inspiring life stories. Why should a person change to fit their vision, when, instead, advertising should do that?

Share your #HumanAfterAll moments with us and we’ll feature the best captures in our Diversity collection which is the main theme of the month ending soon. Nevertheless, the collection will be accessible at any time here.

We are happy to announce the upcoming Wear Purple for Peace Day which takes place on the 16th of May.9979045465_a2b04fbe17_o

It’s a day to promote peace and protest against all signs of aggression and violence.

The purple colour has always been considered a very special colour due to the fact that it is not that often found in nature. It represents creativity and even supernatural powers. These days, Wear Purple for Peace Day adds one more meaning to the 7th color of the rainbow – being peaceful.

Join us in wearing purple on the 16th of May to manifest that you also support the cause for a more peaceful world, no matter where your country, nation, school or home is!
