iphiGenia winner MINDSHARE – image

Interview with iphiGenia-winner MINDSHARE, Copenhagen

The Danish agency MINDSHARE will be awarded with the first international Gender Design Award iphiGenia »Revolution«.   We would love to learn more about our iphiGenia-nominees project and their idea about gender design. Here are our questions: How did you get the idea for Image Hack? The idea came to life by continuously experiencing the difficulty in finding pictures in various image banks that actually portrayed women as strong, independent and equal to men. If we don’t provide the advertising industry with non-stereotypical images of women it’s going to be very hard to change the media land scape and this is why we started working on the idea, that ended with Image_Hack. You talk about »legal hacking«? What is legal hacking? We used the stock sites’ own algorithms to “hack” the site. By tagging our pictures with words as beautiful and strong, we were able to “hack” the site to show pictures of strong and independent women in non-stereotypical roles, when people search for beautiful women on a stock site. What does the term »beautiful
