Because when it’s normalized, you can see it. And when you can see it, you can be it. That is a generational legacy that is bigger than advertising. Not another coastal agency. An Atlanta agency. We are founded in the ATL, where the minority is the majority. Where local culture profoundly influences global pop culture. Where the Hollywood of the South collides with the Silicon Valley of the South. Atlanta culture drives black culture, which drives pop culture, which is America’s greatest renewable resource and global export. Not mediums deciding the best ideas. Ideas deciding the best medium. We ignite diverse lived experiences into cultural disruption that can take many forms, including: advertising, strategic planning, digital, branded entertainment, design, product innovation, experiences, art and activism. Our only agenda is that the best idea wins. (Yea this is a lot of site copy, thanks for persevering.)

  • OpenBCI — OpenBCI is a low-cost, programmable, open-source EEG platform that gives anybody with computer access to their brain waves. Their vision is to realize the potential of the open-source movement to accelerate innovation in brain science through collaborative hardware and software development. Behind the many lines of code and circuit diagrams,OpenBCI has a growing community of scientists, engineers, designers, makers, and a whole bunch of other people who are interested in furthering our understanding of the brain. We feel that the biggest challenges in understanding what makes us who we are cannot be solved by a company, an institution, or even an entire field of science. Rather, we believe these discoveries will be made through an open forum of shared knowledge and concerted effort by people from many different disciplines. Today, the leading brain-computer interface (BCI) companies distribute fixed devices with limited or closed access to the algorithms that translate raw EEG signals to meaningful data. These devices are powerful and effective for application development but not ideal for R&D requiring adjustable hardware setups and direct control over the signal processing techniques. OpenBCI is fully accessible and powered by an open-source community of hardware and software builders, making it easy for creators of any skill level and ideal for researchers who haven’t yet settled on the perfect system design. The OpenBCI platform is intended to serve as a malleable starting point in the rapidly growing field of brain-computer interfacing.
