ARTWORKS FOR BUSINESS

You’re probably wondering, “How is creativity supposed to improve my business?”

It’s simple: some of the most pressing issues facing today’s businesses — long-term remote collaboration, a struggling company culture, burnout, and a lack of innovation — are no match for an organization that pushes its creative boundaries. 

Untapped creativity is the most valuable resource for any business. It re-energizes your team and creates a collaborative working environment where everyone’s voice is heard and amplified. And when this happens, everyone wins. Everyone succeeds. And most important, your business thrives.

HOW I’M DIFFERENT

I was the kid who never grew up. I never stopped asking “What if?” I doodled in the margins of my notebook. I made up songs. And came up with fun ideas.

However many years later, not much has changed. I still ask “What if?” I still doodle in the margins of my notebook, make up songs, and come up with fun ideas.

And that’s why I got a job in advertising. It allowed me to be creative. For years I came up with amazing ideas for some of the biggest brands in the world, and I was having fun doing that.

Over time the fun started to disappear.

I was overscheduled, underutilized, and felt stuck. Morale was down. And one day the boss I most admired walked out the door.

Something was broken. And I couldn’t understand why no one was fixing it. I asked myself why wasn’t a company using their biggest asset  — their creativity — to solve people problems.

And with that, ArtWorks was born.

Now I have the best job in the world. I get to partner with companies and help them find their creative spark. Once we ignite it we transform the disconnected and disengaged into passionate, energetic, confident teams. And we have a lot of fun doing it!
