with Jessica Walsh, Partner at Sagmeister & Walsh
When there are no rules or limitations on a project it’s easy to be overwhelmed by endless possibilities and harder to focus on coming up with great ideas and visual solutions. In their work at Sagmeister & Walsh when they receive a very open creative brief they’ll often make up their own constraints, while also embracing the constraints given to them (budget, time, color pallets, etc) as interesting challenges to be worked with.
Get hands on with Jessica Walsh as you learn the power of making your own rules and constraints in creative work to help guide you to formal and conceptual solutions.
Prepare to get creative and dive head first into a design challenge that will have you thinking both in and out of the box!
