Off-Client Projects Fuel Greater Creativity in the Workspace [PSFK 2015]
Why time away from the daily grind is actually good for your employees and company
At PSFK 2015, Tim Rodgers of rehabstudio, a creative technology studio, introduces +Hackweek and why the monthly event helps inspire better work. In this video, you’ll learn key takeaways for a successful hackathon, along will some of the humorous, quirky and worthwhile projects that have been produced as a result of these short-term creative collaborations.
Rodgers begins by mentioning a problem that has affected most creatives: there is an idea in the back of your notebook and chances are it will sit there until someone else mirrors it in real-life. Due to client deadlines, laziness, or pressing schedules, we fail to act upon our potentially great ideas whether it be for personal pleasure or a work project.
