22 Visually Seductive Social Businesses

From Creative Denim Ads to Contemporary E-Commerce

— June 21, 2013 — Naughty
From culturally creative denim ads to contemporary for-benefit e-commerce companies, this top list of visually seductive social businesses ranges from more design-focused campaigns to sunglass campaigns and the occasional one-off viral tactic. For the last example, for instance, is the Unstash manifesto where the Toronto-based social enterprise created an infographic to connect their customers and potential future clients through bold visuals containing a message. And it was a popular piece on SocialBusiness.org for that reason.

These visually seductive social businesses use the power of the eye to create something different, that is, get their purpose-driven message across by any means possible. The Edun Spring/Summer campaign features popular models in an aesthetic that is quite different from most in the social entrepreneurship realm.
