I recently stepped back and took a look at COOL AND THOUGHTFUL, a body of work that has been compiled by way of important learnings, hard conversations, quotes that take your breath away, dozens of throwaway cameras, people who change us, and interactions that shape and reshape how to see the world.
A couple of you old-timers may have noticed that the site looks a little different. This revamp is not just an aesthetic one, but also a reflection of the next era of COOL AND THOUGHTFUL, a newly codified initiative that uses aesthetics and experiences to shift our understanding of “cool” from rebellion to generosity. In this work, aesthetics become a primary medium to spark a new conversation about how we relate to each other as human beings and to call for a more empathetic worldview.
This is the soundtrack that I listened to again, and again, and again as I was reflecting on this work and charting the path forward.
