Everyone knows the familiar expression, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Recently I came across an image that captures the essence of the culture at my firm, VOX Global. The artist is Maira Kalman, who may be familiar to readers of the New Yorker as her work is frequently featured on their covers. She also illustrated a beautiful 2005 edition of “The Elements of Style, ” commonly referred to as Strunk and White.
One of Kalman’s current project is an occasional illustrated blog published by the New York Times called “And the Pursuit of Happiness.” It is a pictorial essay on American democracy. In the March 26th installment, she included the following illustration.
This, my friends, is the VOX Global Public Affairs firm. We may and do frequently disagree on the most important issues of the day, but nothing stops us from breaking bread together. Just about any day of the week you will find a group of us gathered around a conference room table enjoying our lunches together. So to answer the artist’s question, “Yes, the system works.”
