Alex Bogusky’s career in communications began over twenty years ago when he joined Crispin and Porter Advertising in 1989 as an art director. He became the creative director five years later, a partner in 1997, and co-chairman in 2008. In 2010 Alex left what he called, “the best job on the planet,” to create The FearLess Revolution. He and his band of insurgents, in what they refer to as “the new consumer revolution,” are creating, consulting, and reporting on the emergence of a sudden and powerful counterbalance to corporate power: an educated and empowered consumer. Their most recent project is COMMON, a creative community for rapidly prototyping social ventures.

John Bielenberg helps organizations find the courage and the sense of humor to consider whole new “wrong” ways of bringing their stories, ideas, and innovations out into the world. He is currently collaborating with Alex Bogusky on COMMON. In his career, John has won over 250 design awards, was nominated for two National Design Awards from the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art has acquired six of his projects and staged a solo exhibition in 2000. John is also a founding partner of C2, MavLab, and Nada Bicycle Collective. (09.30.11)
