Morel is the creative collective space where we brainstorm, drink strong coffee, get giddy over inspiring projects, and work together to generate solutions to problems we are passionate about. This is what we started 8 months ago. A labor of love among 3 friends.
And what a ride it has been.
Since then we collaborated with The Marshall Project to create a destination place for the conversation around the criminal justice system. We built a new branding system and website for The Center for Digital Arts and animated the importance of the Census. We helped create a new framework for Storyful, and blasted off on a crazy space adventure with the Voyager Mission for National Geographic. And along the way we enjoyed publishing own quirky newsletter, Foraged where we feature oddities and findings on the web while featuring a few super talented curators.
We have more in the works too! Look for a personal interactive documentary about Ocean Falls made in collaboration with the National Film Board of Canada, a fresh, new branding system for Thunder 11, and a new digital multimedia magazine about immigration made with Talking Eyes Media, VII Photography and Rutgers University called Newest Americans. We feel incredibly lucky to have been able to work on the range of projects with the teams of people that we have.
And the journey continues but now down a slightly different path. We’ve always seen morel as an evolving collective, a mind meld where we come together to make stuff we care about, and it will continue to be so. But for the foreseeable future morel will be evolving to take on only a few special projects while we explore some individual opportunities that have arisen.
As always we are grateful to you for your support and we can’t wait to share the next chapter with you.
