Our History

A Great Idea (AGI) began in 2015 by Creative Strategist and owner Shane Lukas who brings more than 20 years’ experience producing award-winning digital and print design for Monster, AirTran Always, drugstore.com, and Verizon Wireless. AGI represents an opportunity to share and expand those skills with creative partners across the country through a framework informed by his three decades of nationally and internationally recognized volunteer equity- and rights- centered activism. AGI is motivated to bring our best every day because so many of our partners are changing the world for the better, and we are honored and grateful to join with them.
