#R29Collabs is Refinery29’s Instagram-first creative collaborations where we work with designers, illustrators, photographers, and other artists from around the world to create unique social content that educates, empowers, and inspires our readers.
One of our many Instagram-only franchises is our #MotivationMonday series, a franchise that gives life and consistency to our brand's core mission every Monday. Through quotes, mantras, relatable illustrations, and collaborations with numerous female illustrators, we create images that help our audience start the week off feeling inspired and positive! These images by Rachel Jo, an illustrator based in Brooklyn, focused on female empowerment and #SelfLove.
Illustrations: Rachel Jo. Art Direction: Elliot Salazar. Copywriting: Lindsay Arakawa, and Laurise McMillian.
