The people have spoken!
Over the past week, 606 members of our community voted on their choice for a new name. Thank you to everyone who participated and took the time to voice concerns, questions and opinions. The final results were selected according to the Single Transferable Vote method. After months of work and a week of deliberation, the community has chosen a name that represents who we are — we are a thousand ideas, a thousand people, a thousand friendships…We are One/Thousand:
One/Thousand is a mobile society of remarkable young people. We cook up molecular gastronomy, perform pop sonatas, build social empires, and craft radical policy. We bridge geographies and disciplines, designing opportunities for meaningful conversation, collaboration, and discovery. We are bound by our curiosity and creativity, and a value system that emphasizes kindness and integrity as much as ambition and accomplishment. The world is our lab, and altruism is our currency. With over 900 members in 40 cities on 5 continents, we’re connecting tomorrow’s global leaders today.
Our next step is to improve on this first brand story as well as design a visual identity. Together with the name, these should represent our narrative. We’re still working on the timeline and deliverables for this, and will communicate it all in the next few days.
In this process, we’ll continue to incorporate feedback as we go so please don’t hesitate to leave comments. What do you think is missing from this name? What does this name not evoke that you’d like to find in the visual identity and tone of voice?
