  • About your business model


    My questions are a mash-up of the previous ones, as well as some new:

    • How do you decide to do the split up between the pro-bono and regular commercial work. Is there a ratio of projects, to keep everything afloat?

    •How does this stand out among other branding and design firms, a lot of who are doing CSR related work to broaden their profiles.

    • How involved is the whole team when it comes to handing out your grants? Is there a specific committee or is everyone involved?

    • Do you seek collaborations with other independent designers, illustrators, photographers and such, too?

    I'm asking these specific questions as I'm a Graphic Designer and educator, and am interested in discussing work like your with my students. I love the dynamic and spirited content of your website and profile! Great work, thanks for being such good examples of community oriented work!
