Business Through a Different Lens

We see business through the lens of brand and design. In addition to our Founders, many of our members have world-class reputations and records of success in advertising, design, marketing, and building successful companies. As a member of our community, you’ll soon find that our global network is a one-of-a-kind resource that exists to ensure that you have access to the people and talent you need, fast.

COMMON is dedicated solely to ideas and projects that take care of the planet and all the creatures on it. Our criteria:

 

YOU ACT FOR THE COMMON GOOD BY:

  • Creating and sharing social value, rather than extracting and hoarding it.
  • Being friendly to the planet and the creatures on it.
  • Doing good, not bad.

YOU DO SHIT THAT MATTERS BY:

  • Dedicating yourself to doing what’s needed, not what’s frivolous.
  • Disrupting the status quo.
  • Being well-designed and wildly functional.

YOU’RE RUN BY FEARLESS, UNCOMPROMISING, AND KIND PEOPLE WHO:

  • Understand that fear is the mortal enemy of creativity.
  • Stick by their values under pressure.
  • Believe that everyone needs a hug every now and then.

IS THIS YOU? LET’S WORK TOGETHER.
