To celebrate Pride and their diverse employees, L’Oréal USA shared four unique stories of employees and their reasons for marching through the lenses of LGBTQ+ artists. The social video campaign showcases four collaborations between an LGBTQ+ artist and a member of Out@L’Oréal—the company’s think tank for LGBTQ+ rights—to create #SignsOfPride that speak to their individual experiences, yet shared journeys. The signs were premiered at the New York City Pride March, where hundreds of L’Oréal USA employees marched with the signs in tow.
Created by Kettle, the pairs sat down in the weeks leading up to the March to discuss their Pride journeys and what makes 2018 particularly special. The featured artists then transformed those conversations into artwork for employees to parade as signs. The video includes highlights of the conversations and creative process, culminating with the artwork reveal and artists marching side by side with L’Oréal USA employees.
