Betcha can’t go a day without stumbling on a reclaimed or repurposed somethin or other. What’s old is new, and what’s new is reused. February we celebrated and deconstructed “Money” across the globe. Even though Spring’s taking its sweet time, March was here, and we were happy to announce our theme: “Reuse.” Our LA chapter host Jon Setzen selected the theme and recommended us to the wonderful Roxanne Daner who crafted the Reuse illustration. Now, reusing isn’t just about turning old pop cans into toy cars. We decided to take a different spin on what it means to reuse when it comes to a brand, and a message.
