Steal Like an Artist
The best selling author of “Steal Like An Artist,” was engaging and inspiring. Austin shared that no idea is original and that we should expose ourselves to all kinds of inspiration, decide what is worth stealing and take it. But the important thing is not to stop there—make it your own, make it better and then share it with others.

Understand & empathize
How Movies can teach you
to be a better designer.
A great story has the power to shift the way we look at a particular subject, idea or person. There is no better example of this than through the experience of film. A great film has the ability to make us laugh, make us cry, make us pause…. As creatives, we have the opportunity to learn from filmmakers as they explore the voyeuristic, the vicarious, and the visceral through visual storytelling.
How to Avoid Work
Advice about loving work and killing our inner creative critics...
"Doing great work involves risk, chance and above all else freedom. Working for a sense of safety will yield safe work, and safe work is boring."
Idea Execution: How Ideas are Brought to life
Whether you’re a “dreamer,” a “doer” or “incrementalist who waivers between the two,” having a system for work and collaboration is essential to your success. Belsky, quoting Picasso, reminds us that “inspiration exists, but it must find you working.”
The shortest way home is
the longest way around.
Be unselfcritical...just make stuff.
No client should consume
more than 25%.
Practice higher ground.
Live your story.
Keep & seek free radicals.
Never eat at Jack in the Box after 3am.
