The Loneliest Number

September 29, 2020 — 
You could see it in the homemade rainbows on windowpanes. And in the memes of people raising a glass to the mirror to cheers on Friday night. As the world retreated in response to COVID-19, loneliness stole the spotlight, with an audience of pandemic proportion. Suddenly—and very publicly—we were exploring this emotional state, and all its complexity.

20 20 50 and a Buy Now sticker appear on an illustration that looks like a stylized travel poster.

The Rethink

September 29, 2020 —
