With 362 of just over 1,000 official votes, Adam's design was the clear winner of our "Community Collection" design contest in June 2020. We asked artists to submit designs inspired by the concept of Community, and how it's changed throughout the events of 2020. From hundreds of submissions, "Come Together" was selected as a finalist and voted by our Instagram community as the contest winner.

In Adam's words, his design submission was "inspired by the idea of everyone for once seeing eye-to-eye, and growing into who we need to be as human beings." Despite our divisions, "Come Together" is a reminder that we do all share commonalities as humans. We all have similar basic human motivations, and if we leave the space to listen to each other we might find more common ground than we expect.   

Adam's chosen charity is Color of Change, an Oakland-based online organization that campaigns to fight racial injustice. Color of Change helps people respond effectively to injustice in the world around us. As a national online force driven by over 1.7 million members, they move decision-makers in corporations and government to create a more human and less hostile environment for Black people in America. 

By designing strategies powerful enough to fight racism and injustice—in politics and culture, in the work place and the economy, in criminal justice and community life, and wherever they exist— Color of Change is changing both the written and unwritten rules of society. They mobilize members to end practices and systems that unfairly hold Black people back, and champion solutions that move us all forward.
