Nonprofit Tweets of the Week – 7/17/15

Superhero watching over city. No transparency used. Basic (linear) gradients. A4 proportions.

The past week was highlighted by Comic Con, the world-famous comics convention put on by a nonprofit (see Rick Cohen‘s article, Comic-Con Struggles for Its Brand Identity and Nonprofit Provenance). I’ve attended Comic Con in the past and plan to go again to learn more about comics (really!) and see my childhood best friend Larry Zerner, a regular speaker at the Comic Con Law School. Have a listen to The Script’s Superheroes while perusing our curated nonprofit tweets of the week:
