“Is it possible to fix government?”

The first official conversation on NewTalk is happening right now (ending Thursday), featuring NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg, City of Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin, Former US Senator Bill Bradley, and others. I’m on the edge of my seat!


Now Talking

Exciting. We’ve been waiting to talk about this one for awhile — NewTalk.
NewTalk is the brainchild of best-selling author, lawyer and thinker Philip K. Howard. It’s about new kinds of conversations — starting with a single provocative question, each online discussion brings together 6 to 8 experts and unfolds over 2 to 3 days, blog-style. The talks are moderated, the public may comment, and the brilliant results are archived.
Soulellis Studio played a large part in NewTalk from day one. We helped Philip with the initial concept and naming, designed the brand and website, and engineered the entire web experience, with Krate. The whole thing is powered by MoveableType.
The first conversation — “How can we restore Americans’ sense of optimism?” — begins tomorrow (June 11). On June 17, an extra-special guest-star participates in our official launch, with “Is it possible to fix government?” Tune in.


Coming Soon

Here’s some freshly-printed letterhead of a freshly-designed identity for a totally new non-profit by the author of this (and founder of this). But the real home of this brand is going to be online, not in print. More soon, after it launches.
