The Bush Foundation
In 2013, we helped the Bush Foundation celebrate its 60th anniversary with a deep dive into the history of one of Minnesota’s most respected charitable institutions.
In preparation for a “family reunion” of former Bush Fellows, we interviewed more than 100 fascinating artists, politicians, physicians, tribal leaders, deep thinkers and do-gooders, all of whom have benefited from the nearly $1 billion the Bush Foundation has invested around the region since 1953.
We shared many of their stories in this custom publication –designed by Brian Donahue–created especially for the Bush Foundation’s event in November 2013; others appear in these two mini-documentaries produced by Chuck Olsen and the crack team at VidTiger.
The Beginnings of the Bush Foundation
Great Ideas and the People Who Power Them
In 2014, we partnered with the Bush Foundation once again to help them transform a standard annual report into a striking new alumni magazine. “b Magazine,” also designed by art director ace Brian Donahue, highlights the work of Bush Fellows and other innovative partners around the region.
