Yeeeehaw! Modern Species Is Now A Certified B Corporation!

by Gage Mitchell | Nov 5, 2018

After many years of starting and stopping the certification process, we’re thrilled to announce that Modern Species is now a Certified B Corp! To understand how we feel, imagine compostable confetti bursting out of giant recyclable party poppers as we break into a happy dance choreographed to Party Rock Anthem. Yeah. It’s that awesome.

by Joshua Yu | Jul 10, 2018

Join us for our next edition of Lunch & Learn to become vulnerable to the various ways identity has the potential to become a barrier to professional development. A privilege walk helps us discover invisible advantages and disadvantages and uses a facilitated empathy exercise to visualize with real human lives the deeper meaning behind diversity & inclusion initiatives. Personal awareness of these factors can build better working cultures and help produce more positively impactful design work.

1% For the Planet Member

by Gage Mitchell | Oct 30, 2017

We're super excited to announce that we've officially become a 1% For The Planet Member, which means we've now committed to donating 1% of our revenue to causes that support the environment. This roughly equates to double (or more) our former giving policy of donating 5% of our profit each year. So we're doubling down on our impact, in at least this one way.

So, you don’t have money to invest in your brand? You do have money for damage control, right?- Laura Busche
