How constraint, adversity, voids & subtleties can inspire businesses & design?

As designers and entrepreneurs, we know that inspiration can strike at unexpected moments. But can inspiration come from a void? Can adversity, constraint, and subtlety push business forward? Place Makes co-founders share case studies from across the world -- from a burgeoning creative scene in Vietnam despite government regulations to an urban regeneration project in New Zealand after devastating Earthquakes. You will leave this session with stories you won't forget, and tangible tools to not only find inspiration in the unexpected, but also to act on it for your business or design. Come prepared to reflect, to engage, and to discuss these four themes.

3- key topics of the open-lecture:

  • Constraints
  • Adversity
  • Voids

You will leave this session with stories you won't forget, and tangible tools to not only find inspiration in the unexpected, but also to act on it for your business or design.
