If there’s one thing we know at Colorful Creative, it’s that we’re all in this together. We have to be. Much like the concept of Ubuntu (“I am because we are”), Mandy believes there’s no “me” without “we.” It’s why she turned her creative agency upside down after 10 successful years. Realizing that she could no longer separate her work from the passions she considered part of her life’s work, she decided to merge them into a single initiative: an extraordinary branding agency that also made concrete strides toward justice, unity, and compassion. The result is Colorful Creative.
When she revamped her company, Mandy also launched the Colorful Creative Collective to serve as its philanthropic arm. Colorful Creative donates a portion of its profits to the Colorful Creative Collective. The list of issues and movements Mandy cares deeply about is long, but the areas represented by the initial Colorful Creative Collective are among the most important to her: the environment, kids, women, diversity, the Black community, social justice, racial discrimination, the arts, education, the LGBTQ community, and sustainability. Oh, and bugs.
