team developed branding and launch campaigns for corporations such
as Motorola, Aetna, Travelers, Harley-Davidson, and Procter &
Gamble. They operated on the Robin Hood model, where they spent
half the week working on big brands and the other half using their
profits to underwrite work for causes they valued. About 5 years
ago, they made a significant shift in the way they approach their
work. Today, co:lab is deep-rooted in Connecticut and focuses
entirely on social-value/culture-building for non-profits,
communities, social-enterprises and socially responsible

His work has been selected for the permanent collection of the
Library of Congress. Rich has lectured and run workshops on
brand-building for socially-conscious organizations, innovative
business approaches, and ethics. He'll be speaking at AIGA's GAIN
Social Value Design Conference in Fall of 2012 (come out to San
Francisco-it's going to be a great conference!).
He focused on culture thinking as a philosophy major at Boston
University. He then went on to the Museum School, where he focused
on giving ideas a tactile point of access. Rich is a Connecticut
