Rocco Baviera on Fundraising and Philanthropy

Rocco Baviera’s created a recent series of illustrations for Trends Quarterly on the theme of Mindset as it relates to philanthropy and fundraising…“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.” Re-framing your perspective and the idea of “changing the lens in which you view things” are also explored.

We couldn’t have said it or illustrated it better ourselves!

Zina Saunders for the Christian Science Monitor Weekly

The very talented Zina Saunders created the cover for a recent issue of Christian Science Monitor Weekly magazine. The article centered around bullying on Twitter. The idea was to play off Hitchcock’s “The Birds” movie to create the idea of Twitter users attacking others. It turned out brilliantly!
