How do you design a creative space?
Not surprisingly, there isn’t a single right answer to the question. However, it’s enlightening to explore how different people think about & deal with a similar challenge. That’s why we’ve started a series of interviews with interesting people, ranging from festival makers to corporate innovation strategists. We’ve extracted the key insights from those conversations for you. Enjoy it.
