Nothing Can Stop Our Love

In 2012 Forward Together launched it’s first Mamas Day campaign. This was the among the first designs I created for this special campaign.

Mamas Day is a celebration of all mamas, everywhere!

We know that mamahood is not one size fits all. But most popular images of mothers exclude mamas based on their sexual orientation, race, income, immigration status and more. And Mother’s Day, one of the biggest commercial holidays in the United States, often reinforces traditional ideas of family and motherhood that there’s only one way to be a family.

That’s why we created “Mamas Day” in 2011 to highlight the contributions of the many mamas around us, and to work for recognition, rights and resources for our mamas and families.

Each year, we commission artists to create original art that reflects the various ways our mamas and families look. The result is a collection of beautiful and unique cards that better reflect the families we know and love.
