Defiance College wanted a campaign to raise awareness on campus about sexual assault and aid in its prevention, encourage victims and survivors to access resources, and create a culture of caring on campus.
The students on this small campus feel a high level of responsibility to each other, and we wanted to get more of them engaged in prevention and response. Bold and confident portraiture pairs with equally strong voice for a highly-effective campaign that’s personally connected to people and place.
We identified students to be the face of the campaign, leaders and athletes that are advocates and ambassadors across campus. We photographed them in a tone that is serious, authentic, and confident, aligning with the campaign and its mission of standing together toward a common goal.
