Becky Colley (2006-present)
Sole proprietor / New York, New York + Waterbury, Vermont
I'm a brand developer, strategist and designer and a true believer in the need for creative solutions to global challenges, big and small. Designing for the systems that we exist within is critical to the success of any project and sometimes forces us to take risks, other times it requires working within constraints. I'm committed to my clients and their success, to being a good listener, and to being a life-long learner. I believe in asking questions and taking time to understand what people are trying to say and I continue to be amazed by how much people have to offer.
Take risks. Do something that matters. And if you can, take a walk on the wild side.

Citizen:Me proposes that we are all citizens of the world from the start, and that putting a civic lens on education early on is the best way to give each and every kid the tools they need to shape their future. We are a small but fierce and passionate group exploring how kids in America come to understand the roles they play in their complex and rapidly evolving communities and what can be done to help prepare, perhaps even transform them into compassionate and engaged citizens for life.
