A creative dumping ground for issues that interest me personally and professionally, with the thought they may interest you too. Issues such as the business of design, the design of business, the design of objects, design strategy, creative direction, innovation, creativity, thought leadership, observations, as well as recommendations, mid-century modern decorative arts and architecture, and the state of my thinking (and currently the state of my heart).

10 Faces of Innovation




In an exclusive excerpt, we’re introduced to the 10 personality types required to keep creativity thriving in an organization--and the devil’s advocate at bay.
Ideo’s Tom Kelley describes how in an environment of design innovation, the devil’s advocate may never go away, but on a good day, these 10 personas can keep him in his place...or tell him to go to hell.

An insightful article by an insightful man regarding how to deal with certain people in an organization more proned to subtracting than adding. I Highly recommend the book.

“...this book delivers some tasty morsels to managers hungry to boost their companies' level of innovation. It is funny, insightful, and chock-full of surprising examples. If you take it on a flight from Los Angeles, you will have something to use at work by the time you land in New York.”—Bruce Nussbaum, BusinessWeek
