I started illustrating again after I left the corporate world and began freelancing. Once I started, I just couldn't seem to stop. Illustration has become my safe haven to let my freak flag fly. Now more than ever, I dive inward to find fragments of my childhood dreamworld that still exist. 

Girls. Girls. Girls! What brand could stereotypically define Girlhood more than the icon Barbie? In a world full of gender expectations, Barbie showed young women they could be anything and do anything. So, when Vans partnered with Mattel’s Barbie to celebrate the new Greta Gerwig film, we centered the collab campaign around the idea of Girlhood.

We worked with a range of models to represent different styles and identities to showcase that Girlhood wasn’t just pink tutus. Girlhood means exploring your interests, styles that excite you, friendships that support you, and creativity that boosts your shine. 

The look and feel took on a surrealistic tone inspired by the film. Photographer Anna Koblish stylized scenes to mirror the “Real World” VS. “Barbie World” undertones at the fashion photographer Jamie Nelson’s house. The look challenges the stereotypes of Girlhood and encourages girls to be whatever the heck they want. 

Alongside the launch of the film, the campaign lived across brand collab PR assets, social, influencer stories, in-store experiences, and digital.
