Presented by Jen Cook and Dianne Semark

Play is Fundamental
Creatives are already attuned to the fact that play is conducive to creativity, problem-solving, and divergent thinking – and this is backed up by science. But how can a creative team carve out space for play while juggling deadlines and deliverables, especially within a more traditional, corporate culture? Learn about the mindsets, rituals and ways to support your fellow designers to foster a culture of play and creativity.
