As part of my job as Fast Company editor-in-chief, I often visit with advertising agencies to talk about the magazine’s direction and content. Because agency people are among the most creative knowledge workers on the planet, I’m often inspired by the mission statements that prominently hang on agency walls to inspire the troops. On a recent trip to Seattle, I came across a terrific one at Sedgwick Rd. Do you have one to share?
