The Positive Creative: Designer Speider Schneider on the meaning of negative space, and why is it deemed negative?
“Negative space has purpose and function. How can that be ‘negative’?”
The Fashionable Creative: Strategist and speaker Scott Ginsberg on how adopting a uniform, talisman or think map impacts creative esteem.
“Every creator needs a uniform. A wearable identity totem that prompts a work mindset and sets a tone that says to your brain, work happens now.”
