What is it
I am the founder of CREATIVE ECOSYSTEM, a platform that nurtures creative wellbeing and supports individuals and organisations through 1-2-1 mentoring, workshops and inspiring talks and events.
Why it’s needed
I used to think it was only hard work that leads to good creative OUTPUT. I then learned the hard way that in order to keep producing creative work sustainably, I needed a healthy balance of inspiring sources of INPUT.
For me, the whole design process is an expression of care. Balanced INPUT leads to great OUTPUT equals happy clients and revitalised designers. That’s why I call it the CREATIVE ECOSYSTEM. And it should flow in a perfect circle, in and out. Like breathing.
It’s about recognising those areas in your everyday, that give you energy and inspiration. Giving as much attention to the INPUT as the OUTPUT.
A few years ago I took a sabbatical after feeling completely deflated with the creative industries. I had the opportunity to embark on a journey to French Polynesia, the US, Colombia, the Arctic and Ethiopia and in the process rediscovered my creative spark again.
It’s easy to feel energised and inspired when you’re travelling, but how do you keep that up once you’re back in the everyday? I realised, to create good OUTPUT, you need just as good INPUT.
