There is no “i” in Thnk (!)


The THNK Creative Leadership Program at THNK, The Amsterdam School of Creative Leadership is a post-graduate program designed by Lava. Launched this year, with the first class beginning in 2012. Designed to “provoke and inspire professionals, entrepreneurs and scientists into becoming the world’s next creative leaders.”

The absence of the ‘i’ in their name exemplifies thnk’s philosophy: that the challenges facing us today, standing in the world, not only can be solved by individuals, but collectively – creative leaders know this. It is not the ‘i’, the only I, but always in collaboration with others.

Lava has this philosophy represents the individual i’s and bring them together to overlap so as to create a network.
