Background: I was commissioned by WarnerMedia to design the inside and outside of the Be Kind by Ellen box. The theme they wanted me to elaborate on was the idea of humanity coming together.
Approach: This piece attempts to demonstrate a sense of togetherness in a way that also honors the difference and individuality that makes people who they are. I wanted to create a cluster of characters that all looked very different, yet through their clothes and color palettes all came together as one unifying force. We all have very different stories and backgrounds. And I believe that in order for people to truly come together, we must examine what makes us different and learn to celebrate it. We must come together as a mosaic instead of a melting pot.
