Google Doodle for International Women’s Day 

March 2019

In 2019, I produced and directed the Google Doodle to celebrate International Women’s Day, which falls on March 8th every year.

The interactive Doodle features inspiring quotes from 13 women in 11 different languages, illustrated by 10 women artists in 10 different countries around the world.

The global quotes were presented in a colorful animated slideshow featuring custom hand-lettered typography in the speaker’s original language. Each quote features a translation into 20+ languages for audiences around the world.
