“I am washing my face before bed while a country is on fire. It feels dumb to wash my face and dumb not to. It has never been this way and it has always been this way. Someone has always clinked a cocktail glass in one hemisphere as someone loses a home in another, while someone falls in love in the same apartment building where someone grieves. The fact that suffering, mundanity and beauty coincide is unbearable and remarkable.”

Wonder Within

“The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.” We may be biased, but we think Greek philosopher Plutarch was onto something. He also has an ally in the creators of The Humane Space. 

We came together last year to develop a brand strategy and visual identity for the app and its vast collection of original interactive content. It will no doubt inspire all kinds of folks to contemplate the big meaty questions of humanity and the world we inhabit.

Our new case study is up—and it’s got mood for days. Check it out and reconnect with your own curiosity.

Extra, Extra!

Brand New is arguably the most respected and influential design blog about branding. Produced by Armin Vit, co-founder of UnderConsideration, it chronicles visual identity updates and rebrands for organizations across the globe. Some of our work’s been featured over the years (we’re looking at you, Divvy, FLOR and Onward) and we’re stoked that our redesign for Lubeznik Center for the Arts was featured last month. 

If you're a brand geek like us and have a subscription to Brand New, check out the write-up here. And if you missed our case study, find it below.

Fire Power

Like many of our clients, Catchafire has big ambitions. Since 2010, they’ve been supporting vital nonprofits and generous professionals through skills-based volunteering opportunities. Even more, they're dedicated to dismantling power dynamics by de-centering themselves and their huge network of volunteers. 

They came to us with armfuls of research and strategy in hand, looking for a partner to develop a new name and visual identity for their expanding organization. While we’re partial to red-hot names (ahem), we can’t wait to give them a makeover. We’re knee-deep in the naming process right now and will be back later this year to share the whole works.
