On the Passing of Michael Cronan
Futures mourns the passing of Michael Cronan. Michael was a friend, a colleague, and a committed Founding Father who contributed his artistic talents to further our mission of ending violence against women and children. He helped guide us over a ten year span, not only offering strategic direction, but in using his artistic and branding talents on our behalf.
The Founding Fathers logo, embodying the "little star" standing on the shoulders of the bigger star, was an example of his power in branding. With one simple and elegant concept, he illustrated the power of Coaching Boys Into Men. We know he was as proud of this work, as he was of his more famous work for TiVo and Kindle. It's difficult to express Michael's profound impact. He was a great bear of a man with a truly gentle soul. He will be missed but not forgotten.
