Many designers as we (in this industry, anyway) know them…
Today I gave my presentation for Vibewire Youth event FastBreak Breakfast, which was coordinated between Vibewire and Gavin Heaton (Obi-Wan).There were over 70 people in the room to hear my thoughts around creativity, Scott Drummond talk about connections, Isadore Biffin (and oh my fuck was she a passionate speaker!) talk about collaboration, my new favourite speaker Elias Bizannes who discussed true “commercialisation” and the rock himself Matt Moore who dropped the F bomb of the presentations.
Then we got to chat with all the people in the room under our topic headings.
But, my 4 minutes of spotlight has been overshadowed with sociotques detailed insight:
So we find ourselves in quarterly meetings talking up big ideas with post it notes and brightly coloured pens. Your management team might consider this as providing you with a creative outlet and feel satisfied that they are fostering innovation. It’s obviously not scratching our itch so instead of sitting back and complaining, what are we going to do about it?
Ask yourself today, are you creative?
