Great minds DON’T think alike.

Creativity can change the world & diversity is a key element of that. We are looking for the small voices with big ideas, those communities that are full of culture that is rarely seen in the Design World. Because we are just like you. We too come from immigrant parents, mixed races, various beliefs and unique cultures. Together we can make a difference.

Create the change you want to see

About Created for Change

What began as a passion project has evolved into so much more. In 2020, our team launched its first Created for Change initiative, helping thousands of Americans cast their votes in the middle of a Pandemic. Today, we are seeking to create more representation in the world of design by generating opportunities for communities that are often overlooked. Committed to being better humans, our team seeks to challenge the “default” and design a more inclusive tomorrow for all humans using their talent, time and creative superpowers.
