What does iron light mean?

In a foundry, the iron light is the glowing heat that powers change–forging the ordinary into the useful. In science fiction, the iron light is what animates a robot.

We spark the iron light in our partners’ work. That means bringing life and color to their message. It means building the infrastructure needed to champion their transformative ideas. It is the light that turns routine work into purpose-driven projects, which bring about meaningful change in the lives of Americans.

Frank Who?

By now you’ve met Frank, the robot in our logo. He is powered by the iron light.

Frank was a lowly automaton we found wandering the alleys of Chicago, discarded long ago. Infused with the Iron Light, his eyes began to glow, and he slowly started acting of his own accord, performing tasks with the purpose of making the world a better place.

We love Frank.
