Brief Explanation
The biggest barrier to women feeling beautiful is their own self-perception. We needed to prove women wrong about their own self-image. We needed to reveal their real beauty to them.
Describe the brief from the client
As the brand that fights for women's self esteem, Dove wanted to make women feel better about themselves. Only 4% of women believe they're beautiful. How could we prove to the other 96% that they are more beautiful than they think?

Design Process
We called an FBI-trained sketch artist, known for using a Compositure™ Methodology with crime eyewitnesses. He interviewed women hidden behind a curtain and used their self-descriptions as the basis of his drawings. One drawing was based on a woman's own self-description and the second on a stranger's description of the same woman.
To close, we held an exhibition comparing the sketches. Women admitted that portraits based on the strangers' descriptions were more beautiful, happier and more accurate than the portraits based on their own descriptions.
The sketches revealed to the world the striking proof that women are more beautiful than they think.
