Thursday Thinky: Art, Ethics, & Gaming
After a few weeks of hiatus to push our brand new website live, the Thursday Thinky is back!
For those of you who are not yet familiar with the Thinky, every Thursday Amy Small, our VP of Brand + Creative, curates a roundup of great (and sometimes not so great) ideas across a variety of spaces–cause marketing, philanthropy, NPOs, brands, design, tech, innovation, etc–to share with our team. It is such a source of inspiration for us that we decided to turn it into a blog series so we can share it with you.
This week’s edition features an inspiring new shoe from Nike, a bold move from the Baltimore Museum of Art, a discussion on ethics and historical figures, an underwhelming PSA from the American Lung Association, an innovative use of Fortnite by the Royal Canadian Legion, and… a bonus visit to South Dakota.
