CREATIVE ECOSYSTEM nurtures creative wellbeing, it's a platform through which I offer support for individuals and organisations by hosting or giving inspiring talks, events, mentoring and workshops. This tool helps you to recognise areas in your everyday, that give you energy and inspiration. Giving as much attention to the INPUT as the OUTPUT. 

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.

In the above film I talk more about how I think about my creativity as an ecosystem that must be balanced in order to keep producing creative work, OUTPUT, sustainably. For a healthy balance, I have recognised my vital sources of INPUT needed. I think they look different to each and every on of us, but you can use CREATIVE ECOSYSTEM as a tool to nurture your creative wellbeing.

SUPPORT / belonging, giving & getting help
JOY / moments to lose yourself in
MOVEMENT / getting back to being physical
PAUSE / finding creativity in solitude and nature
SOUL / everything is connected
SOUND / music as a healer
INSPIRATION / finding sparks and happiness

Such a joy hearing Emmi talk about her approach to creative practice and being so honest about how being a creative can be exhausting and the need for self-care and connecting with others and nature.

Thanks for yesterday’s workshop and the opportunity to come along. Listening to your story alongside the exercises really helped my headspace; providing clarity (and excitement!) for my own journey.

Virtual programme

In the summer 2020 Creative Ecosystem became an eight-week series of online events and workshops, marking Studio Emmi’s 15th anniversary. Together with the participants we explored wellbeing around creative processes and how it ties to lifestyle as a whole.

I think about my creativity as an ecosystem that must be balanced in order to keep producing creative work, OUTPUT, sustainably. For a healthy balance, I have recognised my vital sources of INPUT needed:

SUPPORT / belonging, giving & getting help
JOY / moments to lose yourself in
MOVEMENT / getting back to being physical
PAUSE / finding creativity in solitude and nature
SOUL / everything is connected
SOUND / music as a healer
INSPIRATION / finding sparks and happiness

Over eight weeks I explored these areas, together with people who have inspired me over the past 15 years of my design practise.
