Thicket turns one!

This month marks Thicket’s one year anniversary!

As many of you know, I launched Thicket one year ago believing that design could facilitate social change, and systemic scale was possible. In February of last year, I started inviting like-minded individuals to collaborate to bring these ideas into reality. By summer, we had a team. By fall, we had our technology platform, the Possibility Engine. By winter, we had a full service consulting practice and design lab. In one year, Thicket has developed a whole new approach to creating impact in complex systems. We have a new article in Stanford Social Innovation Review today that represents our latest thinking called “Cracking the Black Box of Human Reasoning.”

This week, we are partnering with the Institute for Child Success to host a documentary film screening and conversation in New York. “Small Steps” explores the lives of young mothers and their children, and opportunities for design to connect and align systemic resources  to better serve their needs. We hope you’ll be able to join us Thursday evening at Fordham University. Get all the film screening details.

We’re looking forward to exciting things in year two!
