    • Thanks is giving

      thanks-is-giving_01

      As the holiday season rolls around, it’s easy to get caught in the minutia of planning and parties and to forget the significance of why we sit around a table and break bread. After all, Thanksgiving is a day set aside to give thanks. Amidst all of the expensive gifts and extravagant festivities, saying “thank…

      Uganda: Lifewater and Wheels4Water

      Recently I went to Uganda with Lifewater to see the types of projects they are doing and to get a new perspective on our world’s water crisis. Lifewater has been providing water and sanitation in Africa and Asia since 1977. Rule29 is privileged to be involved in their rebranding efforts and to help raise awareness of their…

    • Collaborating with Future Design Leaders and Saving Lives

      Kent-State-Study

      Visual Communication Solutions for the Citizens of Kibera Kibera is the second largest slum in the world, located in Kenya, Africa. Home to one million people, Kibera has no drainage system, so standing rainwater becomes a breeding ground for mosquitoes, thus spreading malaria. Sanitation issues are rampant, too; there is so much trash that it…

    • SEE: South Sudan

      SEE-South-Sudan

      July 9, 2013, marks the second anniversary of South Sudan’s independence from Sudan. Story has become so vital to our understanding, communicating or relating to something in this big wonder-filled world of ours. Last year we felt we had to SEE South Sudan – one of our new projects – before we could help tell it. On Rule29’s and…

    • The Irrelevance of On-Time Arrival and Dan Pallota’s Ted Talk

      Blog-Post

      Performance metrics are an interesting science. In seemingly all work, there are a few select metrics that industries cater to, with the full knowledge that they don’t adequately address what they seek to measure (think of teacher ratings based on students’ learning). I came across this article the other day and was legitimately surprised that…

    • Konjo: Redefining Beauty

      konjo-redefining-beauty

      Buy a pair of shoes, give a pair of shoes to someone in need. It’s a shortsighted and increasingly common model rooted in generosity. Shortsighted in the sense if the people that are getting the shoes are not involved in the process, then it’s one more example of a process that is not creating sustainable…

    • Reflections on South Sudan: Hope & Possibility

      south sudan blog post

      It’s been a little over two weeks…two weeks since I was in the most remote, undeveloped, recovering, and beautiful place I have been to date. I traveled to South Sudan with Wonderkind Studios for Life In Abundance to see and experience our world’s newest country. And I need to be really honest here before I…

    • It’s All About Dignity

      all about dignity blog post

      When I first read this article in Fast Company Design (Why Designers Need to Stop Feeling Sorry for Africa) my reason for reading was purely because the title annoyed me. If nothing else, this article is brilliant just for its title alone! After reading through the article quite a few times, and really looking into…

    • To Give

      Give

      When I was in 3rd grade, one of my favorite things in the world was board games. It was the go-to activity when friends came over. And it was the go-to request for birthdays and holidays. On December 29th 1983, four days after Christmas, my house burned to the ground after a freak explosion with…

    • A Changed Mind

      A Changed Mind blog post

      I’m on my way home from the slums of Nairobi, Kenya after working on our second documentary film. I’m exhausted, and my head is continually spinning. To put it simply, as with every Africa trip so far, I will not be the same. I was hoping to post every day while there, but with limited…
