Skateistan: Her Story


Art direction and illustration for animation

Earlier this year I had an amazing opportunity to work together with few amazing animators on an animation for Skateistan which tells the story of an Afghan girl empowered through skateboarding and education. Both the animation and wider "Give Her Five" campaign aim to put the spotlight on the impact Skateistan is having on the lives of girls around the world. “Her Story” is based on the real life of a student in Kabul, Afghanistan, where Skateistan first started in 2007.

Huge thanks to everyone who worked on this with us.
