We are proud to announce the launch of our brand for the new Parkinson's Foundation. Formed by the merger of our longtime client the National Parkinson Foundation with the Parkinson's Disease Foundation, the new organization is one of the global leaders fighting Parkinson's Disease. Parkinson's affects an estimated one million Americans and 10 million worldwide, making it the second-most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer's.
Our new magazine, For, started with an idea: that we can all individually do more for others. As we collected stories from around the world for our inaugural issue, For: Maturing, we wanted to do something extra for the inspiring people in the issue by showcasing them together in one public place.
We're proud to announce that our Creative Director, Patrick Durgin-Bruce, has been invited to join the Board of Directors of Spark Design Professionals, a non-profit founded to empower owners of independent design studios.
For the past year, we have been working with Better Work - a joint partnership between the UN's International Labour Organization and the International Finance Corporation, a member of the World Bank, that works to improve conditions in garment factories - on a strategic rebrand.
Yesterday was World Population Day, an annual event to raise awareness of global population issues. This year, UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund chose the day to kick off a yearlong push to improve investment in adolescent girls. Girls around the world face greater challenges than their male counterparts. Yet with the largest percentage of youth in history, we - as a global population - have a great opportunity to improve the future of humanity by improving the fortunes of girls around the world right now.
