There’s something powerful at work here that defies description. Somehow, intuitively, it just feels right. I expected “Marketing” and “Blog” to be prominent, and being in PR in knew that would also be quite visible. I love how the 747 other words hover like a cloud and the aerodynamic shape it has.
