Creativity for the Common Good

BOLTGROUP invests in pro bono community projects where our 35-year history of design thinking and creative talents can have a significant impact.

Our Calling

At BOLTGROUP we are mindful of the designer’s role in bringing positive change to the world we share. This includes applying our talents to impact sustainability, community engagement, inclusion of the marginalized, and support of the causes we hold dear. Each year we invest in pro bono community projects where our 30-year history of design thinking and our creative talents can have a significant impact. Here are a few of those projects.
