Until very recently, only 3% of Creative Directors were female . Even though women often make up the majority percentage of graduating designers , it seems that there is a limit to how far women can thrive in the creative industries. This isn’t to say there aren’t any kick-ass creative ladies paving the way, because there most definitely is, but why is it that men seem to be reaching the peak of their creative careers whilst women are struggling to get the accolades  and positions they are more than qualified to hold?
‘I Am Enough’ is a collaborative motion graphics project created to showcase strong female talent in Motion Graphics, Animation, Illustration and Design. Set to Natalie Patterson’s poem ’10 Things Every Female Should Know’ the project aims to connect women across the globe, encouraging them to rise up together and help each other thrive.
The final animation, along with all submissions to the project can he found here.
You can still get involved with the I Am Enough project. Simply download the Creative Pack, pick a section of the animation and send over your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your piece will be added to the collection on the Vimeo channel.
