We create the unfair ideas that give our clients the unfair advantage. The game-changers. The never-been-done-befores. The can-they-even-do-thats? Sometimes: they’re great big ideas that transform entire organizations. Sometimes: they’re nimble little ideas that hijack a conversation. Always, always, always: they have an outsized impact. Unfair ideas let us do more with less. They’re contagious. They’re talked about. One day, those ideas will be the norm, but today, they’re unfair.
