Event Theme

The time for silent acceptance of the status quo is over. Women the world over are taking matters into their own hands, showing up for each other and themselves to shape the future we all want to see. Whatever their focus and talent — politics, science, technology, art — these pioneers are unapologetically breaking out and pushing boundaries. They’re rising up to listen, to be heard, to see and be seen, to celebrate and empower. Women and their allies are joining forces in an explosion of discovery and ingenuity to drive real, meaningful change.
We’re showing up for TEDWomen 2018. Are you?

TED Salon: Belonging

Role: Art direction, design & animation
Co-Hosted by: Helen Walters and Lorena Avilés
Client: TED Conferences

Event Theme

What does it mean to belong? How do you feel when you think about your family, your community, your organization? For many, belonging provides the foundation of all comfort, a sense of conviction that others have your back, that all will be well. Yet sometimes belonging can be less tangible and more illusory or fleeting; it can disappear without warning.
In this salon, we explore what belonging is really all about, sharing personal meditations on family, life, love and loss. This evening’s extraordinary speakers will not only share where they find hope for a more welcoming world, they’ll also shine a light on the breakthroughs and ideas that
might get us there.

Why We Need Net Neutrality

Indigo Awards 2018 - Gold in Digital Ads and Campaigns & Gold in Computer Animation

On July 12 2017, Vimeo stood with activists and like-minded companies in a day of action to support the existing net neutrality rules, built on a court-approved legal foundation (known as Title II of the Communications Act). Vimeo also filed comments with the FCC. Creatively, we were briefed to produce a call to action video campaign asking the public to join and make their voices heard.
Vimeo's Net Neutrality Campaign was widely shared via social media and advertised natively on Vimeo's website, leading to Battle For The Net.
