That branding is EVERYWHERE?
How’d it get to be that way?
One thing that will help.
Let’s do away with this whole ‘puzzle piece’ mentality.
We’re not incomplete.
We’re not missing anything.
We’re not something to be solved.
We don’t look any better when put together.
Of course we want to understand ourselves better, but we’re asking you to understand us!
We’re not puzzling; we’re different.
This round, let’s put down the puzzle pieces. The icons. The ribbons.
We get that it’s still common, and fine, we can work off that common ground.
We’re not something to ‘put together.’
We just want to work together.
