March

As a woman-owned business we strive to step forward with confidence. The legacy of how others shaped society sparks our own longings to contribute. Everyone needs role models — footsteps enough like our own to inspire us.

History must tell the whole story. For girls, knowing women’s achievements expands their sense of what is possible. For all of us, knowledge of women’s strengths and contributions builds respect and nourishes self esteem — crucial to all children and adults now, and in the years to come.

Are you marching for International Women's Day or striking and boycotting in honor of A Day Without a Woman?

Whether you are marching or striking or wish you could, you can participate in Pussyhat Global Virtual March! Let's join together in support and solidarity for women's rights! Put on your pussyhat, make a sign about where you are and what you are for and take a picture.

The pussyhat is a symbol of support and solidarity for women's rights and political resistance.

Make a pussyhat! Give a pussyhat! Wear your pussyhat! .... and so we did!

Connect the Dots

Add a pop of color to your morning coffee!

Getting started any time of the day can sometimes be challenging. 
Take on the world and Connect the Dots!

'Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they’ve had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people. Unfortunately, that’s too rare a commodity. A lot of people in our industry haven’t had very diverse experiences. So they don’t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have.'

Steve Jobs, Wired, February, 1995


What do you need to take the following step?

doencreative-next-step.jpg

We always ask the question ‘what do you need to take the next step?’

Coming up with ideas is not the hardest part – it’s to give ideas meaningful context, a reality check, momentum and continuity. Whether it is for a new business idea, strategy, branding, product development, process improvement, market development, personal development, innovation, communication or more… We realize the possibilities that turn ideas and ambitions into action. We facilitate ideation sessions in a way that will get you closer to the heart of the challenge as well as insights to a path forward

How does it work?
A diverse group of people get together to creatively help ideas or challenges come to life. During a facilitated inspirational meeting, a case is presented to the group – this is what we call the ‘pitch’ – and the group has a chance to provide input and feedback. This results in the ‘pitcher’ gaining completely new insights, contacts and suggestions for his/her idea. At the same time participants are energized by their participation in a creative process that unfolds the idea into reality. A fantastic dynamic emerges, which provides everyone with a great feeling of inspiration and motivation.

Lastly, participants have a chance to network with each other during after the session(s). New relationships and collaboration opportunities emerge.  For more info visit: coolideassociety.com
