Notes de l'éditeur

  • ‘So much style without substance
    So much stuff without style
    It's hard to recognize the real thing
    It comes along once in a while
    Like a rare and precious metal beneath a ton of rock
    It takes some time and trouble to separate from the stock

    So much poison in power, the principles get left out
    So much mind on the matter, the spirit gets forgotten about
    Like a righteous inspiration overlooked in haste
    Like a teardrop in the ocean, a diamond in the waste

    Some world-views are spacious
    And some are merely spaced

    Curves and Lines - Grand Designs’

    Extracts from 'Grand Designs' - written by Rush
  • Most work is coercive. It is done to you.

    The best work is coactive and cocreative, it is done with you.

    It is totally human to want, need and expect that our views and contributions be taken into consideration and yet we defy these wants, needs and expectations at almost every step in our working lives.

    I believe we are better together. Never do anything about me, without me.
  • ‘Vulnerability is the path to belonging, to innovation, trust and creativity.’

    Over 11,000 of 13,000 interviewees for Brene Brown’s research can recall a time in school that was so shaming it forever changed how they thought of themselves as learners – 50% of those recollections related to art and creativity.
  • We get hung up on believing our work is not good enough.

    Most of the time, we are not here to create Masterpieces, we are here to stretch our creative muscles.

    Relax, and sketch yourself into existence.

    Draw for the bin - not The Royal Academy.
  • Creativity isn’t something you just switch on. It ebbs and flows according to the environment and attitude around you. What are the levers and dials you need to be aware of and able to adjust?

    Creativity borne of constraint - Necessity is the mother of invention.

    ‘Creativity is subtraction - Choose what to leave out’. Steal Like An Artist - Austin Kleon

    ‘Drawing is about mark making - Try to use only the marks you need’. 101 Things to Learn in Art School - Kit White
  • Start something - experiment - learn as you go.


  • Be adaptive – like Henri Matisse was with his cutouts.

    What happens when we play with the running order – add things – remove things.

    What is on the critical path and what isn’t?
  • The Soul of Work

    Life Changing Moments

    'The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one, you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again, but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.' Elizabeth Kubler Ross and John Kessler
