“Let's build a new kind of capitalism, one that doesn't reward brands doing whatever it takes to be successful. Brands should actually add value to people's lives — for consumers and employees alike, in ways that don't deplete the Earth, in ways that matter more than neutrality. It's time for a version of reality where whole brands and whole brand thinkers rule. Let's go make that world.” Read more in The Muse by Clio — "An Open Letter to Whole Brand Thinkers: Let’s Take Over the World," by Tim Galles, Barkley’s chief idea officer and director of The Whole Brand Project.

The result: a more intimate understanding of the role home plays in our days, in our lives and in our overall health. This experience will shape the very anatomy of home for the future. Brands can either tap into this understanding or ignore it.
