Flynn Design's insight:

Columbia Pictures picked it up and produced a movie starring James Stewart. My grandfather was welcomed onto the set as part of the team and monitored its accuracy to the series which was eventually published as a novel.

He researched and lived in the locations where his stories were set to assure that every last detail down to the color and style of a table cloth were historically and culturally accurate.

Flynn Design's insight:

"...harnessed the collective creativity and problem-solving skills of hundreds of people in various disciplines across the university to achieve a unifying visual identity."

“Something miraculous happened with this dynamic,” says Scher, ... “You could say it was a happy accident, but really, nothing ever happens accidentally.”

#StuffWeLike: It's been 50 years since Freedom Summer in Mississippi. | Flynn Design | Scoop.it
Flynn Design's insight:

"I have often heard that Freedom Summer in Mississippi registered some voters and built some alliances in 1964, but that its lasting (if almost impossible to measure) impact, was on the young participants themselves. They were galvanized into a feeling of power, of commitment, of mission that seems to have changed many of them and stayed with them as they went on to do a thousand different things that mattered...."
