The Nobel Prize winner Muhammad Yunus tells us in his book Creating a World Without Poverty: Social Business and the Future of Capitalism:
What is wrong? In a world where the ideology of free enterprise has no real challenger, why have free markets failed so many people? As some nations march toward ever greater prosperity, why has so much of the world been left behind?
The reason is simple. Unfettered markets in their current form are not meant to solve social problems and instead may actually exacerbate poverty, disease, pollution, corruption, crime, and inequality.
What is your vision? And what steps do you have to take to bring that vision into reality? Alex Bogusky welcomes the UFUSE Creative Management team to the Cottage. They discuss Alex's recent experience with the UFUSE process, and offer some awesome tips to better steer your career (and your life!).
We're working on a logo project for Food Day and need your help finalizing the design. The nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest is looking for one official logo for the event.

Please review the following logos and vote for your favorites below.
The title of this post might disturb my wife, but I’m man enough to admit that I have an unhealthy level of admiration for Bill Kurtis.
I love Bill Kurtis for his panache.
I love Bill Kurtis for his wit.
I love Bill Kurtis for his humanity.
And I love that if someone searches for “I Love Bill Kurtis” in Google, this article will appear on the first page of results.
What John does best is help people find the courage and the sense of humor to consider whole new, "wrong" ways of bringing their stories, ideas, and innovations out into the world.
In 2009, inspired by the bike culture in Copenhagen and Amsterdam, a small group of young designers in my program called Project M conceived and launched a new bicycle collective called Nada Bike. Nada is a community of people who believe that sometimes simple is best and that "less is more." Less cars, less gas, less smog, less paint, less gears, less lycra, less fat. More independence, more health, more freedom, more sustainability, more DIY, more fun.
A quick note to all the graphic designers. We've extended the deadline to submit Food Day logos to 11:59 PM (MT) this Sunday, the 23rd. So you now have the full weekend to work on it!
WOW. This photo came from one of our followers, Kelly Finnamore. Yes, it is a real tattoo. And yes, he knows we don't use this logo as often. He wanted to make sure everybody can read it! How awesome is that?
This was originally posted by Joshua Onysko on the Pangea Organics Facebook page. Now that you're all back at work, we thought we'd pass it along...
Over the years many people have acted surprised when they hear that Pangea, (a known socially active company), does not close on MLK Day, and this is why.
