Yes is a world.

brandfiercely1Branding, From the CEO, FS+C

One of the things that excites me the most every single day is working with creative people. I love how connected our world has become and how utterly possible this is. In trying to set up a Skype video session this week with a client and a designer in Canada and a designer in Japan, I realized how awesome that is. Each creative person brings something new and fresh from their perch in the world–and it makes all of us collectively better.

I feel that same connection when I am teaching abroad. I love having a classroom full of students from ten different countries who all see design and branding differently. They teach me so much from their cultural experiences and nuance. They remind me to look at creative problems and solutions differently–often from an entirely new perspective.

This international twist for Fierce is new and unexpected and I can’t wait to see where this journey takes us in 2015. It reminds me of some of my favorite words from one of my very favorite poets, e.e. cummings:

yes is a world
& in this world of
yes live
(skilfully curled)
all worlds
