The work also won the Global Grand Effie Award in the Product/Service Launch category, and previously won a Gold Effie in the 2021 Effie Awards US competition.
Crayola developped a new, diverse and inclusive product “Crayola Colors of the World” allowing this way each one choosing the color that better fits his/her skin tone to draw the best selfie of oneself.

The first insight that triggered both the development of the new product and then the campaign to launch it is tha all kids want to feel represented and included.
That’s why the brand partnered with industry experts and listened to consumer snd teachers to find the better way to meet this kid’s need. The answer, crayons allowing to paint all kind of skin colors.

Crayola encouraged kids as well to paint their true selfie and get an adult share the image in social networks with the hashtag #TrueSelfie or upload their selfie to Crayola’s galery of selfies.

With the “Colors of the World” launch and “the #TrueSelfie” campaign, Crayola enabled all children to access a power they had collectively been denied – the ability to accurately color themselves, their families, and their friends into the world.

“With the world growing more diverse than ever before, Crayola hopes our new Colors of the World crayons will increase representation and foster a greater sense of belonging and acceptance,” said Crayola CEO Rich Wuertheleat the time the product was launched in 2020. “We want the new Colors of the World crayons to advance inclusion within creativity and impact how kids express themselves.”

To ensure the new Colors of the World crayons were developed to reflect an accurate and inclusive skin tone palette, Crayola not only conducted rigorous consumer testing, but also partnered with Victor Casale. Casale, formerly Chief Chemist and Managing Director, R&D of MAC cosmetics and Cofounder and Chief Innovation Officer of Cover FX and currently CEO of MOB Beauty, possesses over 30 years of experience in creating foundation colors for global skin tones.

For more than eight months, Crayola’s Research & Development and Marketing Teams collaborated with Casale to bring the Colors of the World crayons to life, modeling his scientific process for developing inclusive foundation shades. Together, Casale and Crayola systematically created crayon colors that step down from light to deep shades across rose, almond and golden undertones, resulting in a 24 global shade palette that authentically reflects the full spectrum of human complexions.
